Experts predicted the fall in prices even in the summer, when information appeared on the upcoming increase in VAT and gasoline prices. In September, the townspeople felt it on their wallets.

Most of the increase has become noticeable for dairy products, which is about 20-25% of the daily diet of almost every Russian. Thus, a kilogram of the popular "Russian" cheese has risen in price by almost 10%: from 380 to 419 rubles.

"We are saved by shares"

According to the data of the Unified Interagency Information and Statistical System, the price of butter increased by almost 20 rubles in a year. Cottage cheese, sausages and sausages went up by 10 rubles. Rospotrebnadzor in St. Petersburg reported that the number of complaints from disgruntled citizens is growing. The agency redirects them to the antimonopoly service.

Sellers of outlets also admit that they do not have time to print and change the price tags.

“The demand is falling,” says Tatiana R., an employee of the trading hall of one of the stores. The product on which the discount is declared, is bought up faster.

Interestingly, the rise in price of dairy products came immediately after the summer period, when there is no shortage of grass and cows give a lot of milk. Even if we consider that for the production of one kilogram of cheese you need an average of 11 liters and about 60 days to ripen, it is not clear why the prices have changed so much in early autumn.

The owner of the cheese factory, Alexander I., says that there are many other reasons for the rise in prices for products.

- The change in the exchange rate affected the manufacturers' expenditures on equipment that almost all cheese-makers order abroad. For this reason, the expenses affected the final cost of the goods, the merchant explained.

State support?

He called the reduction of state financing of the dairy industry in 2017 a problem of state scale. Without an increase in prices for finished products, according to the entrepreneur, dairy enterprises would have been completely without profit. And nobody wants to work at a loss.

Financial expert Elvira Pusharina believes that the "milkmen" are still cunning, saying that the state does not support them.

- Almost every manufacturer in our time can not do without loans. And from January 1, in this area, for farmers, there are significant “concessions” in the form of preferential loans at a rate of no more than 5% per annum. These are good conditions for businessmen, says
expert. Probably, the merchants simply put their risks on their shoulders, or rather, the wallets of customers.

The financial expert considers the already mentioned increase in the cost of gasoline, which occurred at the very peak of the sowing campaign, to be a valid reason.

- Usually, the sowing season ends by June, but due to too cold spring, its periods have shifted noticeably. And if at the beginning of May the petrol of the most popular AI-92 brand cost 36-37 rubles per liter, then in early June its price increased to 41 rubles. And this remains so far, - noticed
Pusharin.

This price increase has sharply increased the costs of not only producers of grain and vegetable crops, as well as the cost of transportation and delivery of products to stores. From here it turned out well justified increase in the cost and grain crops necessary for the production of cereals, bakery products, and other product categories.

Using ashes, merchants justify themselves by raising the VAT rate to 20%. But this will happen from January 1, 2019, and the products, according to the promises of the authorities, will preserve preferential taxation in the amount of
10 %.
