The implementation of the government initiative starts on a pilot basis from today, Wednesday, February 22 the “Household Basket” in Varvakeio – Central Fish Market of Athens, for the entire period of Lent, as announced the Minister of Development and Investments, Adonis Georgiadis.

“It is with great satisfaction that I announce that following an agreement with the Central Fish Market of Athens and its President, Mr. Vassilis Simos, we are starting today a pilot “Household Basket” for all Lenten items. The important thing is that first, we achieved significant price reductions compared to last year, so savings for the consumer and secondly, weekly monitoring of prices throughout Lent so as to avoid increases in those prices. We estimate that this initiative of ours will be embraced by consumers and will find imitators from other fish markets in Greece and will generally push prices down.”

Attached is the relevant table with the prices that will apply from today, 22-02-2023 until Tuesday 28-02-2023 at the Athens Central Fish Market.
