The cost of the Easter basket increased by 30% in 2023

This year, the cost of the Easter basket is UAH 797, which is 29.5% more than last year.

Eggs have increased in price the most, their cost has more than doubled. This trend has been going on since last year and is associated with the reduction of livestock, the increase in the price of fodder and complicated logistics. At the same time, flour — one of the key ingredients of paska (Easter cake), which is included in its cost — has become cheaper by 12%,” explains Nataliia Gerasymenko, “Agriculture” sector expert of the BRDO.

Eggs rose in price by as much as 134.7%, followed by meat (+29.86%), paska (+26.08%) and alcohol (+4.27%).
