Food is an important resource for Mexican families, which must buy what is necessary to supply themselves for a period of time and cook their food every day. However, constant price increases make this harder and harder.
With the goal of helping Mexican families know all about product prices, the head of the Federal Consumer Agency (PROFECO), Ricardo Sheffield Padilla, reveals every week which are the most expensive and least expensive supermarkets in Mexico.
During the update of Monday, May 29, it was revealed that the Calimax located in Blvd. Cuauhtémoc 1250, Col. Zona Río in Tijuana was crowned as the establishment in Baja California with the lowest prices, offering the basic basket at a price of $877.60 pesos.
