Simchon: I'll Lower Dairy Prices 10%

Industry, Trade and Labor Minister Silvan Shalom promised on Thursday that he would make sure that prices for dairy products were reduced at least 10%. Speaking at a meeting of the Kibbutz Industry Association, Peretz said that his office was aiming to increase competition in the market so that prices would go down, without hurting the dairy industry.

At the meeting, Simchon said that “we cannot allow the situation to deteriorate to the point where a mother will not buy the dairy snack her children like” because she can't afford to pay for it.
