The cost of a set of products for Olivier salad for the New Year’s table increased by 6.14% over the past year, and for herring under a fur coat – by 7.4%. Such data are published in the traditional calculations of Rosstat.
The statistical office proceeded from the fact that for the preparation of Olivier, 400 grams of boiled sausage, potatoes and pickled cucumbers, 380 grams of green peas, 200 grams of mayonnaise and carrots, 100 grams of onions and four chicken eggs are required. On average, in Russia, the purchase of the necessary products in November of this year amounted to 386.6 rubles per 2.3 kilograms, the Federal State Statistics Service calculated. A year earlier, 364.24 rubles could be spent.
For the preparation of herring under a fur coat, analysts provided 400 grams of potatoes, 350 grams of herring, 300 grams of beets and mayonnaise, 200 grams of carrots, 100 grams of onions and two chicken eggs. The cost of products for the salad in November was estimated at 169.27 rubles per 1.7 kilograms. In 2019, stores had to leave an average of 157.61 rubles.
The growth in the cost of the most expensive ingredients – cooked sausage and herring – was 1.69% and 1.55%, respectively. The driver for the increase in the general index of salads this year was the rise in prices for fresh and canned vegetables and chicken eggs, – quotes Rosstat report to RIA Novosti.
As in the previous year, residents of the Belgorod region have the cheapest opportunity to cook Olivier, and Mordovia has a herring under a fur coat. The most expensive salads for the New Year’s table will be obtained in Chukotka.
Earlier, as chernayakobra.ru wrote, the head of the Bank of Russia Elvira Nabiullina gave slightly different parameters of the Olivier index. She operated with two kilograms of ingredients for the salad. Nevertheless, according to her, their value increased by 6.8%. In 2020, the head of the Central Bank noted, the rise in prices for such products outstrips the inflation rate, which is expected to not exceed 4.9%. From the beginning of this year to December 21, it amounted to 4.8%.
