WBD to Fix Milk Prices

Wimm-Bill-Dann Foods agreed with the National Dairy Producers Union to fix raw milk prices, union spokeswoman Ksenia Buranova said Thursday.

The corridor is set from 11 rubles to 15 rubles (35 cents to 50 cents) a liter. The Federal Anti-Monopoly Service issued warnings to Wimm-Bill-Dann units in Omsk and Novosibirsk earlier this week, ordering the company to cut milk prices.

“We believe this threshold is beneficial for farmers because they don’t need to worry that the price of milk will drop sharply tomorrow and can plan long-term,” said Wimm-Bill-Dann spokeswoman Marina Kagan.

Raw milk prices have increased about 60 percent in the past year, Kagan said. 


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
