Oatmeal and grain prices have risen the most since 2000 in Russia. The price per kg of rolled oats in stores exceeds 80 rubles. The Ministry of Agriculture notes that there is no shortage of oats.

As the RBC, Rosstat recorded a record rise in the price of oatmeal in retail. In September this year, the average retail prices for rolled oats amounted to 80,9 rubles per kg. In 2010, they cost about 34 rubles per kg. Since last year, the rise in price was about 12%. Instant ready-made oatmeal has also increased in price.

The increase in wholesale prices for oats was influenced by a decrease in production and a deterioration in grain quality in the 2020 harvest due to bad weather. The decrease in acreage also had an impact. In addition, the cost of packaging and ingredients that are part of oatmeal porridge has increased - freeze-dried berries and fruits, sugar, milk powder. Retailers are talking about a 15% - 20% increase in selling prices for oatmeal compared to last year.

Oatmeal is the second most popular cereal among Russians. Rice is in the first place in popularity, then oatmeal, then buckwheat.
