The Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation stood in the way of a bill requiring packaging to be equipped with a price tag per kilogram or liter. The agency is afraid of rising prices due to the recalculation.
The Ministry of Industry and Trade is on the verge of blocking the parliamentary bill, called by the elected representatives of the people «fair price», writes xrust. In other words, packages equipped with the price of a kilogram or a liter of product will never be seen by the average person. Ministerial bureaucrats fear that recalculation of this kind is so costly that production will rise in price. The ministry demonstrated its extraordinary logic in a letter to the president.
There are other arguments. For example, packages of tea, coffee, chips never contained such numbers. Citizens and some deputies have long wanted to oblige manufacturers, packers to indicate the price of a liter or kilogram of products. The reason was the practice of changing the volume of packaging, for example, cereals, in order to maintain the price. Some chains have even switched to packaging eggs in containers of 9 pieces.
The bill is ready to start in October, but now the Russians will see who wins — the Ministry of Industry and Trade or the deputies.
