Agriculture Minister Considers Wheat and Bread Price Hikes Illogical

According to Minister of Agriculture Otar Danelia, it would not be logical if wheat and bread prices were to be increased in Georgia.

As Danelia told reporters, several meetings were held on the subject and a few others are scheduled. “It would not be logical if wheat and bread prices increased in Georgia. Accordingly, we must use all methods to prevent this. The state will do its best to assist this industry. We are keeping a close eye on the ongoing processes,” said Danelia.

According to him, we have reserves of wheat and in general, prices at the markets have decreased. Malkhaz Dolidze, Chairman of the Bakery Products Association, said that bread prices are expected to rise in Georgia and that the process has already started.
