The turnover of retail trade enterprises in the Voronezh region in the first half of this year decreased slightly – by 0.4% compared to the same period of the previous year. According Voronezhstata, the decline in trade (minus 1%) was mainly due to non-food products, which some experts lucidly called “TV”.
But the turnover of the “fridge” that is, the group of food products, beverages and tobacco, for the half year showed a slight increase – 0.4%.
In total, over the past six months Voronezh bought foodstuffs for 102.2 billion rubles. However, when you consider the average size of the inflation of the year (4%), then we can talk about reducing the volume of purchases of food products.
It is noteworthy that this is happening against the background of many performance indicators Voronezh processing enterprises.
So, according Voronezhstata, for the first six months of this year, production of meat increased by 12.3%, poultry – by 11.5%, canned fish – more than 30%, the spread – 20 %, cheese – by almost 10%.
In the argument about the superiority of “refrigerator” over “TV” would do well to take into account the numerous candidates for the State Duma.
