On the new advertising flyers, only stocks of non-alcoholic, alcoholic, hygienic and chemical products are published, and the percentage of reduction, depending on the brands, ranges from 15 to 39 percent. The government decision stipulates that the prices that are reduced due to the expiration of the term, are not considered as promotional sales
As of this morning, traders have gone on the "offensive" of changing prices and putting up "guaranteed price" labels. They have already been installed in some of the larger markets, and the work is ongoing in the rest. According to the information of "Sloboden Pechat", a large number of producers and distributors sent the new price lists during the night, which were then entered into the systems, but in most markets the prices of the shelves "were not guaranteed".
From what could be seen, the bakers were the first to respect the government's decision, so the price of white and semi-white bread of 500 grams, sliced and sliced, which until Tuesday cost 31 and 33 denars, has been reduced by three to four denars and now it is sold for 28 and 29 denars.
Some of the retail chains reduced the prices of bakery products, which they bake and sell, for the same amount of money, but the price of burek in private bakeries was not reduced, and other commonly sold products did not have new prices either.
In some markets, the prices of imported Italian pasta have been reduced by 5 to 8 denars, some of the best-selling Slovenian pate have now received a guaranteed price of 47 denars, while previously they cost 55 denars, domestic milk is sold for 60 denars per liter (previously 68 denars) , while the imported Bosnian for 57 denars (previously 72 denars). According to what we have seen in the price lists, cow's cheese has become cheaper by 30 to 50 denars per kilogram, and the same amount of reduction has occurred in imported and domestic salami. Yogurt prices range from 65 to 105 denars, sour milk, depending on the manufacturer, is sold at a price of 22 denars and up, a pack of 10 eggs is sold at a price of 62 denars. Some of the deli products also became cheaper, although not significantly.
On the new advertising flyers, only stocks of non-alcoholic, alcoholic, hygienic and chemical products are published, and the percentage of reduction, depending on the brands, ranges from 15 to 39 percent. The government's decision stipulates that prices in retail trade, which are reduced due to the expiration of the term of agricultural and food products, should not be considered as promotional sales.
The Minister of Economy, Kreshnik Bekteshi, announced yesterday the list of food products whose price is frozen on August 1st and further reduced by ten percent, and this decision will last until November 30th.
The list in the coming period is likely to be expanded with soft drinks, and with the current reductions, he predicted that inflation in the food sector would fall by 4 to 5 percent by the end of the year. He warned traders, importers and distributors to respect the government's decision, because the market inspectors will immediately start the controls.
