When Price trends of poultry, beef and lamb over the past 11 weeks were observed, there is a pattern that can assist a shopper in saving money in both the short run and even more so in the longer term.
Over the last 11 weeks, it was observed to be cost-effective to buy fresh chicken largely during the start of the week, while the cost of other poultry items like frozen chicken and eggs stayed the same in the past couple of months.
The price of fresh chicken was seen to continue to dip at the start of the week, mostly every Monday - making it an ideal time to buy and stock up on it. So, be on a lookout when you go shopping this week, keeping in mind that a kilogram of the meat is currently at its cheapest price level of Dh10.9.
Meanwhile, the price of beef and lamb, be it variants from Australia, India, Pakistan or the UAE, have stayed the same, as has been the trend, and did not witness any fluctuation in prices. However, good news for some would be that the per kilogram cost of the Indian variant of beef dropped by about Dh10 in the previous weeks, and has stayed at the comparatively lower price level since.
