Only 4 items of dairy product are subject to government pricing

Mohammad Reza Bani Taba in an interview with Fars News Agency economic reporter said: the price of dairy products is not due to the greed of producers, but the price is a function of increasing production costs.

Petrochemicals (25%) Shipping costs (35%) Other items such as sugar, staters, etc. (55%) also experience price increases.

Bani Taba, stating that after the democratization of subsidies on May 12, only 4 items of dairy products were subject to government pricing, said: It is not and is priced according to the pricing regulations of domestically made products approved in 1989 (production cost + 17% of producer profit + 12% of distribution cost +15% of shopkeeper cost).

He continued: ‌ Based on the reports of dairy companies listed on the stock exchange, it is necessary to explain that the average profit of the dairy industry is less than 5% and has never reached 17.

He continued: “This is while the dairy industry has announced its readiness to revive school milk and supply quality milk to schools, even without profit margins.”

A spokesman for the Dairy Industry Association concluded: “Despite these announcements of readiness to help people in difficult economic and living conditions, it is not appropriate for officials to carry out their primary responsibilities to support the consumption of dairy-based health products in disadvantaged villages or schools.” Forget and seek to disrupt the supply and demand system and blame and introduce expensive producers.
