The announcement by the Ministers of Finance and Agriculture about the removal of the price of butter from supervision yesterday provoked criticism from the dairymen, who were quick to state that the move would harm the consumer and cause the price of butter to rise.



The Dairy Council even said that this is a double injury that will both "make Israelis pay more" and will also hurt dairy farmers whose livelihoods will be harmed.



Dairy Council CEO Itzik Schneider

said yesterday that this is an "award for importers and retail chains that can sell butter at an expensive price at their discretion."

"This will lead people who can not afford to buy butter to turn to margarine."



Agriculture Minister Oded Forer,

who was behind the move, is not moved by the criticism and explains in a conversation with Walla! Money why dairy farmers are wrong. Forer believes that in the near future And that the patent according to which government officials are fixed what is the price to the consumer practiced in "other countries has been proven to be a failure."

The battle for butter, watch the Dairy Council CEO tell what will happen to prices

Itzik Schneider, CEO of the Dairy Council, tells what will happen to the price of butter (without)

"The price of eggs in Israel is the highest in the world, even though their level is poor"

- Minister Forer, when the price control of the cottage was lifted more than a decade ago, its price soared. Logic says that removing supervision will raise the price.



"Do not forget that there is an interest in whether the market is open to competition or not. Importing a cottage was a bit difficult. We opened the butter market for import after it was planned for many years, which led to a huge shortage of butter, people already forget, but there was a shortage of butter two and a half years ago.



"Because the market is open and you can compete and there is excess fat for dairies, so always when you control the price, the price is more expensive in the end.



"For example, the price of egg in Israel is one of the highest in the world with the lowest level egg in the world. Take the price of milk in Israel 80% higher than the price of milk in the OECD. The same is true of butter. The next three, as soon as there is a stabilization - the price will be lower. "

"The reform in advanced agriculture"

- Are you talking about the price of butter that was monitored?



"I'm talking about the price of butter per consumer. Whether it will be domestic or foreign, I do not know. The price of butter per consumer will be cheaper. In the end it is the competition that will lead to this. When they opened the butter market for imports, That is, it will eliminate the dairy industry in Israel and there will be a 30% drop in milk production because they will open the market, and the vision is exactly the opposite.



Butter consumption has risen by tens of percent, the price has dropped or at least stabilized. What are the prices on the market that existed in other countries, and I think that economically this experiment proved to be a failure. "



- What about agricultural reform?



"The reform in advanced agriculture, we are conducting a sig and dialogue with the various organizations, the ambition is to reach agreements in the coming month. Our goal is to see in January that there will be a reduction in tariffs on fruits, vegetables and eggs."
