According to the ministry, the markups for open field vegetables soared the most - 60,5%, for greenhouse vegetables - 36,8%. At the same time, premiums for milk amounted to 20,1%, for meat - 20,5%.
MK in Tula previously reported that Rosstat also predicts an increase in prices for vegetables, fruits and milk in October. Consumers of the Tula region felt the same: according to Tulastat, milk fell in price to 47 rubles 90 kopecks in August, while in September the price immediately went up to 50 rubles. And, following the forecasts of economists, this growth will continue in October.
The Ministry of Agriculture did not explain the reason for such a selective rise in prices. On the other hand, the manufacturers "said that the chains that increase prices are not always right," writes Izvestia. The argument of the chains is that vegetables lying on store shelves can deteriorate faster than milk and meat.
In addition, the mark-up for a borsch set of open ground - potatoes, cabbage, onions, beets, carrots - can even reach 100%.
Experts remind that markups, as a rule, are not an indicator of the exceptional quality of certain products. The consumer almost in 100% of cases compensates for the expenses of stores for electricity, taxes, etc.
