Israeli consumers will be able to afford double cheese on their pizza again — not to mention plain milk for parents to be able to give to their children.
Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel has signed an order to create a 4.62 percent drop in the price of milk. The committee on price controls last week cut the price of raw milk by 6.48 percent.
Hopefully the move will lead to a drop in the price of other dairy products as well.
“This is a reduction whose entire purpose is aimed at reaching the pockets of the consumer,” Ariel said, adding in his warning to dairy companies that the measure was “not in order to enrich your coffers.” The minister said he also plans to cut the prices of unsupervised dairy products as well.Hana Levi Julian
