This development was largely influenced by an increase in the price of vegetables, including a 3.6 percent rise in the price of potatoes. Similarly, the price of goods included in the category of sugar, jam, honey, syrups, chocolate and confectionery rose by 2.1 percent. Conversely, prices for oils and fats declined by 4.5 percent and the price of fruit fell by 2.8 percent.
