Alberto Samid vows to halt price hikes
After taking office as the new Vice-President of Buenos Aires’ Central Market, the meat-packing business owner Alberto Samid has already pledged to fight price hikes.
"With my arrival, prices will surely decrease. I will take the Central Market to the streets, to every neighborhood with irregularities. I’ve been ordered by the governor (Daniel Scioli) to take the Market everywhere,” he said today.
Samid added that although he cannot reach the 40 millions of Argentines, he will set a “reference price” to halt price hikes.
Nicknamed “king of the meet” Samid admitted meat prices have soared “around 20 percent” and affirmed they will fall in the next days.
