By BBN Staff: As 2017 continues to be the year of austerity and “fiscal consolidation” and in the wake of yet another fuel increase pushing gas to over $10, another iconic Belizean staple has pushed its price up.

Consumers who enjoy Dario’s meat pies in Belize City will now have to pay $1.50 per meat pie.
Yesterday morning customers arrived at the establishment on Hyde’s lane to purchase the popular breakfast food and were notified of the adjustments.

According to Dario’s, the price hike is due to an increase in production costs.

The increased taxation on fuel was one of the routes taken by the Government of Belize to meet the deficits in the 2107/2018 budget.

It is expected that the costs of other goods and services will too rise with the cost of fuel.

Many Belizeans, however, will reminisce on the days the delicious meat pies used to cost 50 cents; long gone are the days.
