An increase in the supply of garden strawberries led to lower prices in the Polish market

05/22/2020

At the moment, prices for strawberry in Poland are on average 2.8 times higher than in the same period last year.

According to the daily monitoring of the EastFruit project, as the supply of strawberries from Polish farms increased, the price of this berry in the country’s wholesale markets began to decline.

There were several reasons for this situation. Firstly, the offer of these products on the market has increased markedly, as more and more local farms began the season of selling strawberry garden. In addition, the Polish market was attended by garden strawberries imported from an external market, mainly from Spain. At the same time, demand in this segment deteriorated somewhat.

As a result, today strawberries of local production go on sale at a price of $ 3.24-3.84 / kg, which is on average 19% cheaper than at the end of last working week. Also this week, prices for imported berries produced in Spain decreased. At the moment, the price of Spanish strawberries is announced at around $ 2.18-3.64 / kg, which is on average 25% cheaper than a week earlier.

However, at the same time, experts emphasize that, despite the downward price trend, at the moment prices for strawberry in Poland are on average 2.8 times higher than in the same period last year. Polish producers explain the significant price difference by problems with the harvest of strawberry garden because of weather disasters. However, they are confident that the rate of decline in prices for strawberries will noticeably accelerate next week, as the supply of local berries continues to increase rapidly.
