"Blagoj Gjorev" halted production of cooking oil

The Veles-based food production facility Blagoj Gjorev halted today the production of cooking oil because of lack of raw materials.

The management of the factory made the decision today, after the latest increase of price of the raw cooking oil at the world market, Macedonian Radio reported.

As a result, some 150 employees have been sent on a compulsory vacation.

The factory cannot provide funds for purchasing of raw cooking oil, which hit the price of 1,300 euros per 1 ton.

The factory's management sees the way out in government's pledge top release certain quantity of raw oil from the state reserves, which would be later on returned.

On the other hand, the production of margarine in Blagoj Gjorev continues normally.
