2018 Christmas Ham Prices: Actual Price Check and DTI SRP

Noche Buena will never be the same without Christmas hams.
In fact, it has become a Christmas icon for Filipinos that it has become the traditional company giveaways. Wherever you go, there will now be photos of ham in supermarkets and wet markets. You will even see people with free eco-friendly reusable bags of the famous hams we have grown to love. Whether you choose your ham based on brand, sweetness or price, we can’t deny the fact that Christmas will not be the same without hams.
Nowadays, it is inevitable to see price hikes especially that Christmas is right around the corner. This is why the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has released the list of suggested retail prices for public markets and supermarkets. DTI shared that there is a noticeable increase in prices with the holiday goods this year compared to 2017. The hams you could buy in Php 500 or less have gone up.
We went to Robinson’s Supermarket and SM Supermarket to see their prices, however, your nearby groceries and mini-marts may be selling the same hams with a slightly lower or higher price than these supermarkets. It is still best to check out their prices before purchasing your hams. Many supermarkets also offer freebies and discounts when you buy in bulk.
Nonetheless, here are the Christmas ham prices as per DTI’s SRP. The 500 grams Christmas hams range from PHP 137.00 to PHP 169.00. The 700 to 850 grams Christmas hams range from PHP 190.00 to PHP 269.00. The 1-kilo hams can now start at PHP 255.00 to up to PHP 808.50.

Tipid Tips When Buying Christmas Hams

  • Always check the expiry date and the price tag before purchasing.
  • Check if the item price on the tag or shelf is the same with the cashier’s price. If price differs, DTI encourages that consumers pay the lesser price.
  • Check the weights and prices of the competing brands before buying. If you are buying in bulk, it is better to canvass in various groceries first.
  • The DTI SRP is applied nationwide in supermarkets, wet markets, groceries, and mini-marts. Make sure that you are not buying an overpriced item.
