Consumer watch

A meat stall in Pritil Public Market displays its meat inspection certificate for its pork products during an inspection by the Department of Trade and Industry on Thursday. DTI Usec. Ruth B. Castelo, who led the inspection, was surprised to discover that pork was selling for P240 a kilo, which only sells for P95/kilo when directly bought from farm producers and says SRP should be at P180/kilo max.

Curiosity and the cat

A cat looks on curiously as a flower vendor sets up a small stall near the entrance of the Manila North Cemetery on Thursday. The commemoration of All Saints Day and All Souls Day on Nov. 1 and Nov. 2, respectively, often see a rise in the informal economy as many Filipinos sell goods such as flowers and candles to people visiting deceased loved ones in cemeteries.
