Given that in the previous period there was a large increase in the prices of food items that are crucial for the nutrition of the population, the decree limited the margin on all other types of bread.
Bearing in mind that the margin is six percent, and that bread is mostly delivered directly to the retail trade, so that is the retailer's total margin, it was concluded that the price increase will not affect their business.
The government of Serbia, after consultation with representatives of producers and associations, at today's meeting adopted a package of measures related to the safe supply of wood assortments and price control of firewood and pellets.

The Decree on limiting the price of pellets, which was adopted with the aim of protecting the energy security of the Republic of Serbia, and which will be in force 90 days from the date of entry into force, stipulates that the maximum retail price of pellets must not exceed RSD 38,000 per ton in all packages.
The decision made it possible to export logs with special permits that will be submitted on a monthly basis to the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management.
Permits submitted by the 15th of the month for the current month for the total amount of wood assortments planned for export will be issued for a period of two months.
At today's session, an amended decision was made on the temporary ban on the export of Euro diesel EN 590, which extends the ban for another seven days.
