Price setting is as complex process, which requires taking into consideration many factors. In different periods, the systems of price setting existed in the meat sector of the agro-industrial complex, which took into account only the external factors: competition, value of goods and production costs. The system of price formation that was in existence in Russia up to now was based only on the costbased principle. Transition to formation of the free market prices practically has not led to changes in the methodological approaches in price setting and has not influenced their structure. The current price formation system in the meat sector of the agro-industrial complex does not correspond to the contemporary requirements of the economic science. Thus, it is an obstacle on the way of introduction of the objective economic laws in conditions of the market relations. It is possible to achieve production efficiency with such use of the existing resources when the differentiated production costs are proportional to the utility of these resources. The utility of products is determined by a complex of properties that reflect their value in use. The main qualitative parameters are consumer properties of products. The main internal factor influencing the price parameters is the qualitative composition of raw material. In order to create parity in price setting for different groups of products, the unified method of price equivalence with regard to the qualitative parameters of the raw material constituent was developed. Quality characteristics of meat products are composed of the product structure, morphology and chemical composition, and, finally, coefficients of consumer properties calculated with consideration for all above-mentioned factors.
