In the chain we intend to support that price level which would be favourable to all links.

However the expert has informed that at small enterprises it is difficult enough to support the high quality standards of production. on large molokozavodah is certain unified and tehnologizirovannye standards that provides stable quality of let out production. On small and family business all on - to another. And the more mini - farms and mini - factories will appear in a network, the it will be more difficult to establish the uniform quality standards and the it is more difficult to supervise and support them - mister Furshchik summarised.
