Producers of chicken and eggs agreed to freeze prices
Producers of chicken and eggs have agreed to temporarily freeze selling prices for their products. However, the industry is counting on additional government support.
As the RIA News" With reference to the general director of the National Union of Poultry Breeders Sergei Lakhtyukhov, industry enterprises have undertaken a commitment that socially important products - chicken and eggs - will not rise in price for two months. At a meeting at the Ministry of Agriculture, producers asked the Russian government to increase the limit on concessional investment loans and extend their validity period. Entrepreneurs also expect that the state will compensate part of the costs for each kg of manufactured products.
Lakhtyukhov stressed that a compromise between industry players and the state does not mean that business will fix prices at a certain level.
In February, representatives of retail chains warned the Ministry of Industry and Trade about the upcoming price hike 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%.
