MANILA - The prices of Pinoy Tasty and Pinoy Pandesal will stay the same until New Year's Eve, the Filipino-Chinese Bakery Association Inc. said Sunday.

Pinoy Tasty will still be sold at P35 per 450 gram loaf while Pinoy Pandesal will be kept at P21 per 250 gram pack, the group's former president Henry Ah told reporters.

Ah gave the assurance that the products' quality will not change, noting that its weight and ingredients are listed in the packaging.

The Department of Trade and Industry earlier secured commitment from manufacturers to hold for at least 3 months from September, price increases in canned sardines, canned meats, all kinds of milk, coffee, bottled water, instant noodles, bread, salt, soy sauce, fish sauce, vinegar, bottled water and candles.

Inflation has hovered at near 10-year highs but the slower-than-expected 6.7-percent spike in September led economic officials to believe that the increases were easing.
