Milk prices going up

Not even a day after the reduction in electricity price was announced the Pancyprian Organization of Cattle Farmers is saying ‘we have no choice we need to put the prices up to save ourselves’. The increase is expected by the 13th of August, even though one of the milk distribution companies have already raised the price of 1.5 litre milk bottle by 6 cent. The news brought an immediate response by the Cyprus Consumer Association which demand that the price of milk stays fixed and requests the Commission for the Protection  of Competition to intervene. Currently a litre of milk in Cyprus costs three times as much as the same quantity in Germany.
