Argentina’s Production Ministry is looking to add more cuts of beef to a price-control system in a bid to make red meat more affordable amid rampant inflation, according to a ministerial official.

Government and industry representatives are in talks over possible additions to the “precios cuidados” program, the official said, adding that no decisions have been made.
