An increase in the supply of white cabbage in the Polish market has led to another reduction in prices

06/19/2020

Abundant rains in southern Poland have already had a detrimental effect on the quality of white cabbage, and therefore producers are forced to harvest ahead of schedule

According to EastFruit project analysts, Polish farmers have begun to reduce the price of early cabbage. According to market operators, they associate a tendency to lower prices for these products with a seasonal increase in the supply of white cabbage from local households. At the same time, the pace of its implementation remains rather restrained.

As a result, today most producers offer early cabbage at a price of $ 0.38-0.57 / kg, which is on average 15% cheaper than at the end of last working week.

According to Polish farmers, heavy rains in southern Poland have already had a detrimental effect on the quality of white cabbage, in connection with which producers are forced to harvest ahead of schedule. Thus, the supply of cabbage in the market increased sharply, which provoked a decrease in prices in this segment. It is worth noting that a number of wholesale companies have already begun to refuse to purchase these products, citing low quality characteristics.

At the same time, demand for early cabbage in Poland this week has fallen markedly, which also puts pressure on prices. Nevertheless, it is worth noting that, despite the negative price trend, at the moment, early cabbage in Polish farms is on average 1.8 times more expensive than in mid-June last year.
