Representatives of retail chains warned the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the impending rise in prices for chicken and eggs. Among the main reasons is the reduction in supply on the market due to bird flu, due to which manufacturers are forced to raise selling prices by 10%.

As they write "News”, Producers of poultry and eggs provided such a justification for the increase in purchase prices that retail chains agree with it. However, retailers have assured that prices for consumers will rise gradually.

The reasons for the rise in price are mainly associated with the massive spread of bird flu. Outbreaks of the virus took place in southern Russia, then spread to other regions. Also, the price of feed has risen recently. All these factors add to the costs of producers.

The Ministry of Agriculture noted that there are indeed prerequisites for raising prices. However, they will have a short-term effect. And a significant rise in prices should not be expected.

True, according to the Ministry of Economic Development, chicken meat is becoming more expensive since the end of autumn 2020. From November 2020 to January 2021 alone, prices for these products increased by 5,6%. At the same time, as noted in the Rospitsesoyuz, in 2020 alone, the cost of production increased by 20-25%.
