The period of stockpiling continues to influence Russian market of whey powder, as traders understand that the prices will not already fall this year.
The ban on import of Ukrainian and Polish products, and essential decrease of stocks in Belarus affect the market also.
Present price level in Russia already allows Belarusians to trade legally on the BUCE.
In the middle of July the prices for whey powder of domestic and Belarusian origin are at RUR 46-50/kg depending on seller and quality of the product.
The majority of traders do not agree to sell whey powder at cheaper than RUR 48/kg any more. Supply of European whey powder is very low in Russia. High-quality products cost about RUR 77/kg.
