Goodbye guacamole! Avocado prices soar

According to the Agrifood and Fisheries Information Service (SIAP), the recent hike in the price of avocado is due to several factors, including inflation, lower avocado production and a growing demand from the United States, leading to domestic shortages. 

At this time last year, the price of avocados hovered around 45 pesos per kilo.
