The price of bread should also be reduced,” Minister of Agriculture Ismet Abbasov said, APA reports. The minister said that the price of bread was artificially increased in spring and the ministry’s had negative attitude towards it.
“It was groundless. Wheat produced in Azerbaijan has increased. This will continue in the following years. As far as I know, the price of bread is being reduced,” he said.

As regards reducing bread’s weight, the minister said it was impossible.
“Weight is determined basing on standards and it is not right to reduce it. The price of agricultural products has been liberalized by the government. As regards the weight, there are standards and bread should be baked in line with these standards,” he said.
