Today, the Government of Northern Macedonia added rice, eggs and pasta to the list of basic food products whose maximum prices are limited to the level from December 1.

This was announced by the Ministry of Economy of Northern Macedonia, stating that the price limit of those three newly added food products will be valid until January 31, 2022, as well as the previously “frozen” prices of several basic foodstuffs.

On December 4, the government of Zoran Zaev decided to “freeze” the prices of bread, sugar, flour type 400, sunflower oil, permanent milk fat of 2.8 percent, 3.2 percent and 3.5 percent, fresh meat and cured meat products, cheese and Swabian cheese.

According to Bekteši, the decision to add rice, eggs and pasta was made in order to prevent possible increases in the price of those basic products, as well as other basic food products that are widely used in the diet of the population.

“This decision aims to prevent further disturbances in the market and eliminate the harmful consequences of the market disturbance in the supply of the population with basic food products,” reads the decision transmitted by the Ministry of Economy of Northern Macedonia.

It is added that the decision was made on the proposal of the Ministry of Economy and that “prices on temporary discounts that were valid on December 1, 2021 are excluded.”
