Public monitoring of food prices in Magadan differs significantly from official statistics

Blogger from Magadan Anton Afanasyev published a photo of price tags that grew up in February on store shelves. In the list of food prices that have risen in price, socially important goods such as bread and dairy products, eggs and cereals.

12 February 2015, Governor of the Magadan Region Vladimir Pecheny, at a regular meeting on the monitoring of food prices, said that he tightly controls the situation related to the increase in prices for socially important food products: “We will not allow unscrupulous entrepreneurs to profit from people, taking advantage of the difficult economic situation in the country”.

He noted that in the region the maximum size of retail trade allowances for certain socially significant goods that are implemented in the region, namely:

1. Bread, wheat, bread from a mixture of rye and wheat flour, weighing at least 300 grams

2. Milk, kefir no more than 3,2% fat

3. Sunflower oil refined for l 1

4. Chicken egg

5. Cheese of domestic production 45% fat content by weight

6. Butter 72,5% fat, weight

7. Sugar sand

8. Flour of the premium weight and packaged

9. Baby food products (including food concentrates), with the exception of juices packaged in tetra-packs of various capacities, with the inscriptions “recommended for baby food”, “can be used for feeding children from 3 years of age”, etc.

Today, the official portal of the Government of the Magadan region published Magadanstat data for 1 in February and for 1 in March 2015 for average consumer prices for socially important goods.

Let us compare the published data of Magadanstat on socially significant foodstuffs, which were included in the list of the "governor", with the photographs of the price tags taken by the blogger in the capital of the region.

Rye bread. According to Magadanstat, as of February 1, the average price in the region is 81,53 rubles, as of March 1 - 81,53 rubles. In the photo of a blogger from Magadan, the price is 46,9 and 47 rubles. respectively.

Wheat Bread According to Magadanstat, as of February 1, the average price in the region is 75,42 rubles, as of March 1 - 75,42 rubles. In the photo of a blogger from Magadan, the price is 40,7 and 43,5 rubles. respectively.

Buckwheat. According to Magadanstat, as of February 1, the average price in the region is 81,41 rubles, as of March 1 - 79,24 rubles. In the photo of a blogger from Magadan, the price is 85 and 123 rubles. respectively.

Egg... According to Magadanstat, as of February 1, the average price in the region is 89,9 rubles, as of March 1 - 89,01 rubles. In the photo of a blogger from Magadan, the price is 92 rubles on March 1.

Milk. According to Magadanstat, as of February 1, the average price in the region is 84,42 rubles, as of March 1 - 84,48 rubles. In the photo of a blogger from Magadan, the price is 82,5 rubles.

At the same time, the photos of the blogger suggest that the price went up, in some cases less significantly (bread, milk), in some cases more (buckwheat, egg). It should be borne in mind that the photos were taken in the capital, where the mechanism of price regulation is adjusted more effectively.

Now let's turn to products that are not categorized as "socially significant"
