The Agency will open a network of state fish shops
The Agency came up with the idea to create in Russia the fish shops with affordable prices. On the basis of FSUE Agency hopes to revive the state fish shops. Ten years ago it was not possible.
FGUP “National fish resources” will create in Russia a network of fish shops “at affordable prices”, said in a statement on the website of the company. Stores will allow “to stabilize prices on the market,” the company said.
“Natsrybresurs” already have one social fish shop: in the end of 2017 on the territory of the Kaliningrad marine fish port opened the shop, “Port”, it sold the products coming directly from fishermen, without intermediaries.
What is Natsrybresurs
FGUP Natsrybresurs was established in 1999 by order of the government and subordinated to the Federal Agency for fishery. Owned by “Natsrybresurs” two trawlers with a residence permit in Murmansk and Nakhodka carry out fishing activities in the exclusive economic zone of Russia, the products are supplied to the domestic market.
Revenue Federal state unitary enterprise, the company in 2016, according to the SPARK database, — of 612.9 million rubles., net profit — 8,6 RUB mln Data for 2017 yet.
The common name for the shops of the new network is now being discussed, said the representative of the Agency Ksenia Timakova. The first store is scheduled to open in August-September in Murmansk. Until the end of the year planned to open two more shops each with an area of about 200 sq m in Vladivostok and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. Prices will be about 20% lower than the average in retail, promises Timakova. According to her, the decision on further development of the network will be informed by the evaluation activities of the first stores, the demand for them among the population.
The dream of “Ocean”
The issue of the high cost of Russian fish has been raised repeatedly in recent years. The high prices of the fish complained in December of last year Vladimir Putin in a course a press-conferences the Director of Murmansk fish processing plant Mikhail Tooth. “Now the chicken is worth 100 rubles, cod 300 rubles What we mock people?” he asked the President. The cost of fish affects a large chain of intermediaries from the fisherman to the counter, has repeatedly pointed to the head of Rosrybolovstvo Ilya Shestakov. In high fish prices is to blame “crooks and swindlers”, “which control the transition of the fish from the jetty up to the counter”, said the head of FAS Igor Artemyev.
Attempt to create a specialized fish stores, the Agency has made in the last decade. In 2009 the Department prepared the concept of building such a network, in which it was planned to open in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Astrakhan and Nizhny Novgorod 15 stores “Ocean”, and by 2012 their number is planned to increase to 250. Investments into opening of one standard store with an area of 180 sq. m., Rosrybolovstvo then estimated at 6.3 million rubles, wrote “Vedomosti”.
The concept of “Ocean” was also developed Natsrybresurs: the network wanted to create without the participation of national retailers to avoid charging suppliers fees for network logon and other payments. But to independently implement a project failed, and subsequently, they engaged in X5 Retail Group, managing networks “Perekrestok”, “Pyaterochka” and “Carousel.” In 2013, inside the “Crossroads” opened the first “store in store” under the guise of “New ocean”: they only sold fish and seafood. Now X5 in the statements mentioned only that the company owns its own brand “New ocean”, but about open stores no information.
Created “Natsrybresurs” the stores are not quite correct to compare with a large network of retailers, said Timakova. Store in Kaliningrad and those that will open in other port cities, are independent, socially-oriented project, says the representative of the Agency.
