    Social Protection of the Population by Regulation of Food Prices and Trade Margins Does the Law No. 1447-VI Achieve its Objectives?

    (Code:AgPP 28)

    The Ukrainian Government and Parliament are trying to limit the negative consequences of the financial crisis on the Ukrainian population by various policies and legal initiatives. On June 4, 2009, the Ukrainian Parliament adopted the Law No. 1447-VI limiting trade margins, reducing payment terms of suppliers and reducing contractual arrangements between suppliers and wholesalers and retailers in the agriculture and food sector. The Law is limiting trade margins to 20 % over the whole value chain from the agricultural producer to the processor to the wholesale trader and finally to the shop. Law makers expect from this law to keep food prices at low levels, to fight inflation and to fight monopolies in the food distribution chain.
