Specific structural features of the formation of milk price in the food chain


  • L. Pankratova


The article highlights the problems of the formation of milk prices in the course of the produce movement from agricultural producer to consumer. The author calculates the share of each participant of the price chain in the structure retail price and estimates the obtained values as compared with similar ones in different countries. It has been established that the share of agriculture in the structure of retail price for milk in Ukraine is lower than in other countries. At the same time, the level of retail prices for milk has reached similar indicators in most European Countries. In view of the above, the author makes a conclusion about the presence of a disproportion in the distribution of economic results between the participants of the milk price chain. In our opinion, the problem requires a weighted agrarian policy and constructive scientific research. The author proposes various measures for fair distribution of the results of economic activities between the participants of the given price chain, which would contribute to the improvement of the situation in the milk subsector and rise of milk and dairy products consumption by Ukraine's population.
