We’re keeping to our traditions and have cooked up a New Year Supra Index for our readers once again this year. The Index identifies the average cost of a standard festive supra meal for a family of five to six people over every Georgian region.
In November 2021, the Khachapuri Index continued its upward trend and reached 5.37 GEL. This figure is 7.2% higher than the previous month (October 2021) and 19% higher than November 2020 (YoY). Every ingredient contributed to the YoY Khachapuri Index inflation: eggs (38.6%), flour (30.2%), butter (22.6%), yeast (18.7%), cheese (14%), and milk (10.3%).
