High food prices in Algeria cause major concerns amid economic crisis

Ever increasing food prices in Algeria are sparking outrage among the nation's citizens. It seems that the Algerian government is increasingly relying on imports for basic food products due to “chronic shortages” of consumer goods in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis.

An Algerian news outlet reports that the prices for flageolet beans range between 140 DZD Algerian dinars ($1) to 400 DZD per kilogram ($2.92). The data, which was released in October, revealed that lettuce prices rose to 160 DZD ($1.17) before moving down to 40 DZD ($0.29) in November.

Meanwhile, Algerian stores sell lentils for 300 DZD ($2.19) per kilogram while prices of chickpeas and rice mounted to 400 DZD per kilogram ($2.92).

The news outlet emphasized that the Algerian government acknowledged the crisis, raising concerns about the country's agricultural production. The government stressed that local production cannot satisfy Algeria's consumer demand.
