A 20 per cent hike in the price of halloumi cheese is expected in the coming days, president of the cheese makers association Giorgos Petrou said on Monday.

Petrou told CyBC radio that there has been a 40 per cent hike in the price of raw materials while the cost of energy has doubled, which is forcing the consumer price up.

He also said that the price mark ups are analogous to the cost of production per unit and these will vary from €1.5 to €3 per kilo for the sheep and goat halloumi.

Moreover, the 5 cent mark up on cow’s milk will roll over on to the halloumi and milk price, he said.
