There will be no sharp jump in prices for sunflower oil in stores, despite the rise in prices for raw materials. Several major manufacturers have announced this. In the agricultural markets, the price of raw materials for oil production increased by 5 thousand rubles per ton over the week. Experts attribute this to a sharp jump in demand for this product abroad. Most of the sunflower was exported this year. This is despite the fact that the harvest this year is not big.
Manufacturers are confident that the antimonopoly service will not allow a sharp rise in prices for the final product for consumers. Therefore, they are counting on modest growth to recoup the cost of purchasing raw materials.
Independent experts believe that the demand for sunflower will soon decline and the prices for raw materials will decrease. Including for domestic manufacturers.
