Today, large greenhouse plants are ready to ship tomatoes at a price of 22-25 UAH / kg ($ 0.83-0.94 / kg), which is on average 17% cheaper than at the end of last working week

Ukrainian factories are forced to lower prices for tomatoes, according to analysts of the EastFruit project. According to the daily monitoring of the project, the beginning of the mass sale of tomato from summer greenhouses led to a decrease in prices for these products throughout almost the entire territory of the country.

Under the current conditions, attempts by local greenhouse farms to maintain the previous price level were accompanied by a slowdown in sales, as a result of which they were forced to resort to negative price adjustments. So, today large greenhouse plants are ready to ship tomatoes at a price of 22-25 UAH / kg ($ 0.83-0.94 / kg), which is on average 17% cheaper than at the end of last working week.

The current situation is due to a significant increase in production from summer greenhouses. Along with this, some combines in the southern regions note that due to the heat, tomatoes do not ripen properly, which shortens their sales and also puts significant pressure on prices.

At the same time, it is worth noting that after the price reduction in the segment of greenhouse tomato on the Ukrainian market, its price has actually dropped to the level of last year in the same period.
