Wholesale prices for chicken began to decline
Selling prices for chicken meat in Russia began to decline. In the second half of April, selling prices won back a third of the growth since the beginning of the year.
As reported "News" with reference to the head of the National Union of Poultry Breeders Sergei Lakhtyukhov, the demand for products began to decline during Lent. Currently, prices for chicken meat have stabilized and started to decline.
The Ministry of Agriculture noted that the demand for poultry products was growing due to the fact that outbreaks of bird flu led to a decrease in production volumes, as well as an increase in the cost of chicken meat production. Now the cost of a chicken carcass is 124,3 rubles per kilogram, a decrease in a week made up 0,3%.
However, the new dynamics have not yet been reflected on store shelves. According to Rosstat, the cost of chicken in retail has grown since the beginning of the year by 14,6% and amounted to 165,7 rubles per kg.
In March, chicken meat producers agreed with retail chains on fixation for three weeks purchase prices for a broiler carcass. At the same time, the agreements are informal, and retail prices will not be affected at all.
