Mercadona has decided to join other supermarkets that have taken the initiative to reduce the prices of fresh and commonly consumed foods, with the aim of collaborating in reducing inflation in the market, according to El Español yesterday. The company has announced that from this week it will implement this measure to benefit its customers with more affordable prices.
On the list of foodstuffs that will be subject to price reductions are artichokes, which are in full season and have been in great demand. The reduction for this product will be significant, with a 37% discount, which means a reduction of 1.99 euros per kilo.
On the other hand, salad tomatoes will also have a significant price reduction of approximately 13%, which translates into a reduction of 31 cents. Both packaged products and those sold in bulk will be affected by this reduction and the price per tray will be 11.7% lower at a cost of 2.09 euros.
In addition, green courgettes will also benefit from Mercadona’s new pricing policy, with a price reduction of around 15%, which means a saving of 1.69 euros for consumers.
In line with continuing to offer discounts on fresh and healthy food, fruit and vegetables will also see price reductions. For example, the kiwi will see its price reduced by 25 cents, to a cost of 2.63 euros, while the flat bean will see a price reduction of 20%, bringing it down to around 2.30 euros.
