Ukraine: prices for garden strawberries are reduced

05/23/2020

In conditions of fierce competition, gardeners were forced to significantly reduce the price of strawberries

According to the APK-Inform: Vegetables and Fruits project, the supply of domestic wild strawberries in the Ukrainian market continues to grow. In view of the increase in the supply of local berries, gardeners are forced to reduce selling prices. In addition, pressure on prices was also exerted by a decrease in the quality of these products due to adverse weather conditions in several regions of the country.

So, today the prices for wholesale lots of domestic strawberry vary in the range of 55-75 UAH / kg ($ 2.05-2.80 / kg), which is on average 29% cheaper than at the end of last working week. Prices for substandard berries were announced by producers from 40 UAH / kg ($ 1.49 / kg).

The main reason for the situation, experts call, first of all, the rapid increase in the supply of strawberry garden from the southern regions of the country. As a result, in conditions of fierce competition, gardeners were forced to significantly reduce the price of these perishable products.

It should be noted that at the end of May last year, the supply of strawberries in the Ukrainian market was much larger than today, due to the early start of the sales season. As a result, local gardeners were forced to sell these products 38% cheaper than today.
