Mogilev region’s market is filled with expensive imported vegetables, but the situation is temporary – the expert says

Mogilev region’s market is filled with expensive imported vegetables grown in 2012. But soon the region will get local vegetables which will seriously reduce the prices. The information is provided by Irina Lakhadynova, the chief of the Antimonopoly and Price Policy Office of Mogilev regional administration.

At the moment overseas fruits and vegetables are dominating at the regional market. Potatoes from Egypt and Israel make Br9,2 – 15 thousand per kilo. Beetroots from Poland cost Br15, 000. Carrots from Israel and Macedonia total to Br8-13, 000. Cabbage from Poland and Macedonia make 7,7-11,6 thousand per kilo. According to Irina Lakhadynova, the price is really high since it is made up of contract prices, custom duties, and transport expenses. At the same time these products are socially important. Their trade markup should not exceed 20%.

As for the last year’s harvest of the local producers (“Veino”, “Kadino”, “Rassvet”), Mogilev region has fixed the lowest prices in the republic. A kilo of potatoes, carrots or beetroots cost consumers Br1,25 thousand, cabbage - Br0,9-1,7 thousand.
