The prices of food and supplies in Cali restaurants are at risk

Cali’s gastronomic sector has asked the National Government for help to avoid a restaurant crisis in the city.

Brany Prado, director of Acodrés Pacífico y Amazonía, explained the rains, the closure of the Pan-American road for more than two months, the increase in gasoline and agricultural inputs, meaning that the value of menus in restaurants will increase. especially for an executive lunch.

“Since there is no flow of customers, sales drop and dealers have to stop hiring, that is why we believe that the national government should seek another help for the sector, which allows this crisis to be resolved in time and a balance point that benefits both the dealer and the consumer,” said the executive who asks, for example , a gradual discount imposed on consumption is implemented and both restaurants and franchises do not pay this tax but VAT, so that they are deductible at a single rate for the entire industry.

This year, the city of Cali has increased its prices for the second time and has the most expensive family basket. It is estimated that between 67% and 70% of the value of inputs coming from Nariño has increased because of the problems on the road to Rosas, Cauca.

For the controller Acodrés, even if the analysts explain that inflation will spike, the price will not stop overnight and in the meantime the issues will be affected by reduced sales.

Today an executive lunch costs $17,000 on average, while a year ago it was $12,000 or $14,000.
According to data from the union, the gastronomic sector of the city will grow by 11.7% in 2022, the best post-pandemic and national data. “And we thought that 2023 would be a positive year, but the effect would be increased.”

At the moment there are 7,800 formal gastronomic establishments in the city, according to data from the Chamber of Commerce. During the pandemic, 63% of the offer was lost and an estimated 3,283 were closed.
