Primorsky Krai promises to keep the price of social bread

From January 1, 2015, in Primorye, only the selling price for bakery products will be indexed by 8,5%, according to the business Internet publication of the Far East "Golden Horn", citing the press service of Vladkhleb OJSC. The main reason is the sharp rise in the dollar exchange rate, and as a result, the increase in the attractiveness of grain exports over sales in the domestic market of the country.

Viktor Ponomarev, Head of the Food and Processing Industry Department of the Primorsky Krai Department of Agriculture and Food, told EastRassia: “There will be no sharp rise in prices. Yes, it is hard for enterprises now, but we, no doubt, helped them and we will help, subsidize, ”says Victor Ponomarev.

“And is it really possible to call a 50 kopeck rise in price sharp? Let's just take a calculator and calculate: now half a loaf of bread costs 15 rubles, and it will cost 15 rubles 50 kopecks. What does this mean for grandma? We multiply 50 kopecks by 30 days - we get 15 rubles. And this despite the fact that only one ride costs 18 rubles! " - explains the Head of the food and processing industry of the Primorsky Territory.

“We have one of the lowest prices for bread in the region. There was a slight rise in price, but for which segment? - for premium bread made from the highest grades of grain. People who can afford it sometimes don't even look at the price tag. And there has never been a sharp rise in price for social bread and cannot be. We keep the price of social bread and we will keep it! " - Viktor Ponomarev told EastRassia.
