With highways released in the state, the Rio Grande do Sul Supply Center (CEASA) registers a 50% drop in the availability of products this Thursday (3). The reason is the road blocks in Santa Catarina, through which trucks must necessarily pass to reach the gaucho territory.

According to the direction, foods from the Southeast and Northeast, such as tomato, onion, potato, pepper, melon, watermelon, papaya, mango and pineapple have not arrived in Rio Grande do Sul since Monday (31).

“Until Tuesday we had no problem and Wednesday was a holiday. But today is the day of greatest commercialization and unfortunately the products did not arrive”, reports the president of CEASA Ailton dos Santos Machado.

Ceasa estimates, through contact with companies and producers, that between 150 and 200 trucks have failed to arrive in the state so far. And even if the roads are open, the journey can take about 10 hours. The place is responsible for the distribution of fruits and vegetables to all regions of Rio Grande do Sul.
