According to reports, the overall price of edible salt in March remained stable. In terms of cities, the average price of edible salt in supermarkets in Hefei, Harbin and Xi'an increased from last month, while the average price of edible salt in supermarkets in Beijing, Shanghai, Hohhot, Chongqing and Zhengzhou fell from last month. Among them, the main reason for the increase in the price of edible salt in Xi’an supermarkets this month is that the local sales of low-priced salt originating in Hubei have been affected by the epidemic. The supply of edible salt has been reduced. The price of sales of table salt has risen.
