In this scenario, there have been cuts that have increased more than others and areas where there have been larger increases. For example, in Rosario there were average increases of 2.4%, in Córdoba 2% and in Buenos Aires 1.7%. And within Buenos Aires, it was in the areas with the greatest purchasing power that the greatest increases were observed. The city of Buenos Aires, with 3.2 percent, and northern Greater Buenos Aires with 2.9 percent, were the areas with the greatest changes, while in southern Greater Buenos Aires, the average increase was was only 0.5 percent, according to the IPVA.

“Beef prices had a 3.9% increase in outlets serving high socioeconomic neighborhoods. In those selling in the middle socioeconomic level, prices increased by 1.1%; while that in those serving the low socioeconomic level, prices increased by 1.4%,” the report describes.

Another interesting fact is that the increases in January were higher in supermarkets than in butchers. The price of beef in butcher shops showed increases of 0.6% in January 2023 and 40.4% compared to the same month of 2022, while the average price of beef in supermarkets showed an increase of 4.7 % compared to the previous month and an increase of +45.5% compared to January 2022.

The Ipcva states that in the AMBA lWhat increased the most in January was the skirt, with an intermonthly change of 4.6 percent, followed by the special picada, which grew by 3.6 percent. Chicken meat (4.4%) and pork breast (3.6%) are also in this range of increases.

The price of sirloin rose in January in AMBA by 3.2 percent, strip roast by 3 percent, vacuum-packed by 2.7 percent and buttock by 2.3 percent.

For the February report, we can expect much more significant increases that are already being seen on the meters.
