Yamilka Palomino Gómez Commercial Director of the entity of the Wholesale Company of Food Products in Camagüey stressed that before the end of each period they have deposited the basic family basket regulated the following month.

An additional pound of chicken per capita was distributed to vulnerable age groups in July for children ages 0-13 and adults 65 and older; For people ages 14-64, a half pound of additional sausage was also met.

Two and a half pounds of additional rice will be distributed to all consumers this month, reaching 10 pounds and six ounces of beans this month, in addition to the ten ounces of peas that are already being delivered to the population.
