In the second half of March, “sandwich” fell by 2.3 points to 102 points
MOSCOW, April 1 – RIA Novosti. In the second half of March, the index of coffee with sandwiches “(” Sandwich “), reflecting the picture of the consumption of popular breakfast foods by Russians, fell by another 2.3 points to 102 points.
The index was developed by RIA Novosti based on data provided exclusively to the institution by experts from the major analytical resource Check Index. For his calculation, the “basket” contained seven products – frequent guests at the morning table of Russians: loaf (400 grams), ham (200 grams), butter (180 grams), cheese (200 grams), cucumbers (500 grams), instant coffee ( 95 grams), sugar (1 kilogram).
For items from this consumer “cart”, “Index Slip” analysts regularly calculate aggregated impersonal sales indicators (average invoice). 100 base points were taken as the “Coffee and Sandwich Index” value for the period 1-15 October 2022. Its variation corresponds to the arithmetic mean of the dynamics of the average check for each of the seven products.
In the period from March 16 to March 31, the average bill for ham alone increased by 3% compared to the first half of the month, reaching 127 rubles. Decreased for other goods of the set: coffee (from 6% to 171 rubles), cucumbers (from 4% to 161 rubles), long loaf (with 3% to 29 rubles), butter (2% to 130 rubles) rubles), sugar ( up to 2.56 rubles) and cheese (up to 2,157 rubles).
Thus, the index decreased by 2.3 points compared to the previous two-week period and became 102 points.
