Today, the prices of meat, vegetables and fruits increase most of all. Administrative methods cannot stop the rise in prices. In the third quarter, the price increase will exceed 5%.

Some price reduction will be observed only for vegetables and fruits due to seasonality. However, starting next month, prices for cucumbers and tomatoes, peaches and pears will begin to grow. The volume of these products in the market is shrinking, so the prices will go up.

In addition, prices for canned food, pasta, sunflower oil, butter, cheese and fish will rise.
