Prices for imported cabbage on the Russian market today are much lower than a year ago.

The first batch of imported new crop cabbage began to enter the Russian market, EastFruit project analysts said. Project experts note that the import season of this product in the Russian Federation this year began a few weeks later, while import cabbage of a new crop is now much cheaper than a year ago.

So, at the moment, the first lots of cabbage of a new crop this season are on sale at a price of 30-35 rubles / kg ($ 0.42-0.49 / kg). So far, the supply of this product is quite limited. The main volumes are imported from Uzbekistan, market participants also report the presence of products from Iran.

Buyers rate the quality of imported cabbage of a new crop as quite high. Nevertheless, it is worth noting that today the price of these products on the Russian market is on average 13% lower than at the beginning of March 2019. For comparison: last year, the first batch of imported early cabbage went on sale at a price of 35-40 rubles / kg ($ 0.49-0.56 / kg). At the same time, it is worth noting that the producers of the Southern Federal District of Russia plan to enter the market with a new crop of white cabbage no earlier than mid-April.
