Notwithstanding the near-runaway inflation seen in Estonia in 2023, the price of a basket of goods fell slightly on year, ETV current affairs show "Ringvaade" reported on Tuesday.

Whereas the basket of good cost €37.98 (see below for "Ringvaade'" selection of items) this week, one year ago the same assortment came to €37.78, making for a fall of 0.53 percent (i.e. 20 cents).

Of significant price changes among specific items and brands, the price of bread fell by 34 percent on year to January; milk, by 31 percent, "Ringvaade" reported. Bananas, sour cream and cheese also saw a price drop over that period.

With some products the movement was in the opposite direction, most notably washing powder and lastevorst ("children's sausage," a bologna-type processed sausage), which both rose by 13 percent. Beer, too, among key products, has become costlier over the past year, by 6 percent.

Canned foods, yoghurt, minced meat, chocolate and rice all cost essentially the same now as they did a year ago, "Ringvaade" found.
