As a follow-up to my Kia Sportage price comparison, I naturally decided…milk should be next.
1 liter – 33 ounces
Low Cost – R$1.95 (US$1.13) DALIA
High Cost – R$5.06 (US$2.95) CAPPRY’S
Price for a Gallon – Between US$4.52 – US$11.80
Source: Pão de Açúcar
1 gallon – 128 ounces
Low Cost – US$3.29 (R$5.64) Safeway
High Cost – US$6.59 (R$11.30) Horizon
Price for a Liter – Between R$1.41 – R$2.82
Four liters of Brazilian milk basically equals 1 gallon of American milk in quantity. ‘Price for a liter’ (or gallon) based on calculations. I can only assume Brazilian milk has the added benefit of lasting longer (at least while shelved) than American milk, which has to be refrigerated immediately. Also important to note that Pão de Açúcar may not be equal to Safeway in quality or prices. Perhaps Whole Foods prices would be a better comparison? Either way, I don’t see the final tally fluxuating to any significant degree.
