In Britain, due to rising prices, traditional food stores reduce portions

In Britain, due to rising prices amid the Ukrainian crisis, shops of traditional local food have to reduce portions and switch to less popular types of fish.


Some manufacturers may close altogether.
It is noted that between 35 and 45% of the white fish consumed in the UK is caught by Russian vessels. At the same time, cod and haddock rose in price due to poor fishing and US duties against Russian products.


In addition, since 2020, the cost of vegetable oil, the sale of which is subject to restrictions, has increased by more than 150%, which has hit the producers of potatoes for fish and chips.
