Tbilisi waits for US grain supply
ITAR-TASS, February 3, 2004
Bread prices are 10-15% up in Georgia. A loaf of bread used to cost about 40 tetri (18.7 American cents), and the current cost is 45 tetri (21 cents).
Higher wheat prices on the world market and the Russian government's tax on wheat exports are the main reasons, experts say. Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan are the leading exporters of grain to Georgia, sources in the Georgian Agriculture Ministry told Itar-Tass on Tuesday. Over 50% of imported grain comes from Russia. The domestic grain production in Georgia meets only two-months demand (240,000 tonnes).

"Georgia will replenish the wheat reserves with supplies from the United States, and there will be no sharp increase of bread prices," Georgian Agriculture Minister David Kirvalidze said earlier. Yet the U.S. decision to send 50,000 tonnes of grain as humanitarian assistance to Georgia has not contained the growth of bread prices.
