RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Thirteen of the most basic household items that form up a Brazilian's diet went up in price in fifteen of Brazil's seventeen state capitals in April, according to a report by the Department of Statistics and Socioeconomic Studies (Dieese).
These items form part of the consumer basket, or cesta basica, which is an important price index in Brazil used to measure inflation. The goods that most effected prices in April were soybean oil, beans, milk, bread, tomato and potato . . .
