Belarus citizens have bought up almost all the cigarette stocks of middle and upper price segment in the run-up to their price rise. These types of cigarettes are missing at gas stations, restaurants, cafes, pizzerias and bars. Now mainly a low-price cigarette category with unchanged prices is available.
Meanwhile, one of the major cigarette manufacturers in Belarus JSC «Grodno Tobacco Factory «Neman» is «operating normally — around the clock seven days a week, using all the production facilities with 100% loading,» the company said.
As Telegraf previously reported, June 8, price of cigarettes of middle and upper price segment of both domestic and foreign production in Belarus rose by 30-60%. However, the price of «Neman» lower priced tobacco products will remain the same.
