Fair Prices contains more than 1,700 products at a fixed warehouse price, dairy, cleaning, perfumery, personal care and hygiene, baby items, fresh produce and beverages. Consumers will be able to find the program’s products on the shelves of retail and wholesale supermarkets

How to identify the products

The Ministry of Commerce created specific Fair Prices signage so that supermarkets clearly and precisely indicate which products are covered by the measure. It will be visible in the supermarket gondolas.

Inspection and verification of compliance

The Secretary of Commerce will sign agreements with mayors and mayors to strengthen monitoring. In this way, the number of inspectors throughout the country is expanded.

These agreements will be replicated with different municipalities throughout the country to reinforce the federal nature of the measure. In turn, the Secretary of Commerce will transfer to the corresponding local authority 25% of the proceeds from fines made in each district.

The Ministry of Commerce will continue to monitor price variations on a daily basis through the Electronic System for Advertising of Argentine Prices (SEPA).
