Freeze against speculative prise increase in Slovakia

By: trademagazin Date: 2008. 06. 19. 00:00

Slovakian government may freeze the prices of 20 basic food items to shield consumers from unjustified price jumps after the planned euro adoption in January 2009.

 According to Reuters the proposed list
includes bread, beef, pork, milk, butter, eggs, flour, apples,
potatoes and sugar.

"Freeze, or moratorium, is only
one of the options … in case retailers don't make speculative jumps
in food prices such a moratorium won't be needed at all," said
agriculture ministry.
