This was revealed by PROFECO

Buying groceries and home products is essential every time you get paid (weekly, biweekly, or fortnightly), as that is how one gets the food and products one needs to live. However, constant price increases have made it harder for families to buy what is necessary to feed everyone.

This is why the Federal Consumer Agency (PROFECO) through its head, Ricardo Sheffield Padilla reveals every week the supermarkets in the country with the highest and lowest prices, so that consumers can know which establishment is the “friendliest” one.

In this weekly report, he shared that one of the supermarkets with the most expensive basic baskets in the country’s Northern Zone (Baja California, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León, Sonora, and Tamaulipas) is the Walmart at Plaza Galerías Hipódromo, where these items cost $971.30 pesos.

According to PROFECO, the basic basket should provide for a family of four during a period of one week and it is made up of the following products:

1. Edible vegetable oil 1 piece of 946 ml
2. Grains of rice 1 kg
3. Tuna flakes in oil (maximum 5% of soy) 2 cans of 140 g
4. Standard sugar 1 kg
5. Beef 1 kg
6. White onion 1 kg
7. Jalapeño pepper 1 kg
8. Pork 1 kg
9. Black beans 900 grs
10. Chicken eggs, 1 package of 18 eggs
11. Bar of soap 1 piece
