Talks commenced Wednesday morning at Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz's Tel Aviv office over ways to combat increasing prices on basic foods. Prompted in part by the recent boycott over cottage cheese, Steinitz said that cottage cheese is only one of a number of staple foods that have seen a price hike, and that the goal of the talks was to find a solution to lowering prices on all food products.

Steinitz was meeting with representatives of retail chains, agronomists, and antitrust expert Professor David Gilo, said the purpose of the meetings was "not to deal with cheese or some other specific product, but rather to check if there is a specific failure, or a certain or issues in need of repair in the market."
