Earlier EastFruit reported that for the period from February to June 2020, inclusive, the decline in revenue of Ukrainian exporters from the supply of walnuts abroad amounted to $ 9.4 million, or 36%.

According to Andriy Yarmak, an economist at the Investment Department of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the season for exporting walnuts from Ukraine began in October 2019 with record export rates and the first three months of the season gave walnut growers good revenue. However, already in January 2020, when China was quarantined, export demand dropped sharply and the volume of export earnings was consistently lower than last year. Demand for Ukrainian walnuts in Turkey dropped sharply. Deliveries to the countries of the Middle East fell several times, which was not fully offset by the growing demand for walnuts in the EU countries. At the same time, average wholesale prices also fell, which negatively affected the revenue. “
