Published: 17 November 2014


Jorge Méndez, head of Paraguay’s Industria Nacional del Cemento (INC), announced a drop in cement prices for 2015-16.

At present the price of a 50kg bag of cement is PYG42,000, but next year is expected to see the price fall to PYG35,000.

The upcoming change has been attributed to production process modifications such as the plant’s new dryers and fuel switch at the Vallemí works.
