Canned food and preserves from fish can rise in price in Russia by 5-15%. The reasons are the rise in the cost of logistics, packaging and the rise in prices for fish being processed. The revision of canned food prices usually takes place in June-July.

As the Kommersant, the suppliers have already sent a notification to the trading networks. Experts note that the cost of delivering fish from the fishing areas to processing is growing, and the costs of fishing and servicing vessels are also increasing. There was an increase in prices for herring, ivashi, mackerel.

According to the manager of the Dobroflot Group of Companies Alexander Efremov, suppliers of preserves from salmon and ivasi can raise prices due to the expiration of the shelf life of raw materials and stocks before the start of a new fishing season. At the same time, the cost of pollock due to restrictions on supplies to the Chinese market this year fell by 20-25% than a year earlier.

The head of the Information Agency for Fisheries, Alexander Savelyev, notes that salmon have risen in price by an average of 30% over the year, and sockeye salmon in Kamchatka is sold at about 30 rubles per kg. In the course of fishing season and cheaper pink salmon and chum salmon entering the market, a correction should be expected, but there are no prerequisites for a significant decline. Salmon caviar prices are forecast to be around XNUMX% higher than last year's levels in the fall.

However, the Federal Agency for Fishery believes that there are no prerequisites for an increase in the cost of preserves and canned food - due to the growth in the production of Pacific herring, and an active phase of salmon fishing is beginning in the Far East.
