STA, 1 April 2022 - Slovenian meat processing companies large and small have raised prices of their product by up to 30%, or plan price hikes in the near future, as they attempt to offset the rising cost of inputs such as energy and transportation.

Celjske Mesnine has already raised prices of pork, beef and processed products by 30%, and the Maribor company Košaki raised theirs by 10-30%.

"Sharply rising prices of pigs and cattle have forced us to raise our prices," Marko Žerak, the owner of Košaki, told the STA.

Perutnina Ptuj, the country's largest producer of poultry, and Pivka Delamaris, a poultry and fish processing company, plan price hikes in the coming months.

The price rises are not fully spilling over into retail prices yet.

Urška Žolnir Jugovar, a spokeswoman for Celjske Mesnine, says companies are working with retailers to try to keep price rises to a minimum.

Similarly, Meso Kamnik said it was rising prices gradually to mitigate the impact on consumers.

"Producers are rising prices with a delay and at the minimum rate ... and retailers are adjusting their pricing policy with lower margins and discounts," the company said.
