Wholesale Food Prices Rise 9.0% Y/Y in August

Wholesale prices of foods in Bulgaria rose by an annual 9.0% in August, according to data published by the State Commission on Commodity Exchanges and Wholesale Markets.

Prices of food products, especially vegetables, increased unusually this summer, state-run Bulgarian National Radio (BNR) reported on Tuesday, quoting data from the commission.

The commission attributed the increase to adverse weather conditions and soaring energy prices.

Apart from garlic, prices of all vegetables were higher than in August last year, as tomatoes cost twice as much and cucumbers were 70% more expensive.

Last month, the prices of sugar and pulses rose slightly compared with July, whereas rice, mackerel, chicken and minced meat retained their levels.
