Agriculture Minister Marian Jurečka says retailers are responsible for the steep rise in the price of butter. According to the minister half of the price makes up retail stores profit margins. He said rising prices on world markets had also contributed to the increase.
The Union of Tourism and Trade has dismissed the claim that retailers are to blame saying the development of dairy prices on world markets is responsible. The price of butter on the Czech market has doubled in the past year.
