Analysis of the dynamics of the supply of fruits and vegetables at the largest trading platform in the region for the 20th week of 2020

05/18/2020

Representatives of 15 countries placed their ads on EastFruit sites over the week, which is the highest indicator in recent months

Over the past week, the audience of the largest fruit and vegetable trading group EastFruit Trade Platform exceeded 7700 participants. Let us analyze who and what sold at this and also other EastFruit sites during this period.

The geography of active members of the group continued to expand. Representatives of 15 countries placed their ads in a week, which is the highest indicator in recent months. Representatives of Azerbaijan, Georgia, Egypt and Serbia were added to the already traditional leaders of activity (Russia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Belarus, etc.). Exporters from Azerbaijan offered potatoes, Georgian producers – blueberries, which have not yet begun to be harvested, and participants from Egypt and Serbia – table grapes and strawberries, respectively.

It should be noted a decrease in the activity of participants from Uzbekistan and an increase in the number of announcements from Russian representatives, despite the holidays.

Leading products by the number of ads remain potatoes and onions. Beets and carrots are actively approaching them, the supply of which has significantly increased due to an increase in the volume of early production of the 2020 crop. Young cabbage also continues to crowd out last year’s produce. Producers are trying, as quickly as possible, to get rid of stocks of old cabbage, so the number of ads for its sale increased by 2 times. In Russia, the supply of tomato has increased significantly, due to an increase in the supply of local greenhouses.

In the fruit and berry segment, there were no significant changes, with the exception of a decrease in offers for the sale of lemon and a slight increase in the number of offers of strawberry and apricot.

A graph of the dynamics of proposals for key positions in quantitative measurement is given below.

The greatest demand among buyers who posted requests for the purchase of products was enjoyed by potatoes, as well as strawberries, apricots and cherries.

In the EastFruit Fruittechnology technology group, after the end of the seedling sale season, packaging for vegetables and fruits became the most popular product. Manufacturers of technological equipment offered drip irrigation pipes, equipment for quick cooling of berries and equipment for storing vegetables.

In the tables below we give an analysis of prices for fruits and vegetables, advertisements for the sale of which were published in our groups throughout the week.

Prices of the EastFruit Trade Platform trading group (Russia)

The increase in the supply of early vegetables of the “borsch set” of the 2020 harvest put pressure on prices. As a result, prices for onions, carrots, beets and cabbage fell during the week. Prices for old potatoes of the 2019 harvest continue to fall. Tomato, cucumber and Iceberg salad are getting cheaper. On the greens market at Moscow Food City, offer prices for green onions, cilantro and sorrel decreased.

In the fruit and berry segment, one can note a decrease in apricot prices and an adjustment in the maximum prices for garden strawberries. In addition, oranges became cheaper, while lime and tangerines, on the contrary, increased in price.

Prices of the EastFruit Trade Platform trading group (Uzbekistan)

Active harvesting in Uzbekistan has reduced prices for almost all vegetables. Compared to last week, only the price of cauliflower has not changed. At the same time, suppliers preferred not to indicate the price of stone fruits, such as cherries and apricots. The reasons for this lie in the difficulties with the sale of these products and the rapid decline in prices.

By the way, we note that the number of participants in the UkrOpt group, which was created to trade on the domestic market of the country, has already exceeded 2250. The analysis of prices in Ukraine can be found in the reviews of the markets for the respective EastFruit products placed on Saturday and Sunday.

Prices of the EastFruit Trade Platform trading group (Belarus)

A little about prices in other countries. Blueberries from Georgia were offered at a price of $ 6-6.5 per kg, but harvesting of blueberries has not yet begun – the first crop is expected in late May. Horticultural strawberry exporters from Serbia delivered at the price of 2.3 € (Serbia FCA), 3.15 € (Belarus DDP), 2.6 € (Russia DAP). Greens from Armenia were sold at such a price: tarragon – 350 rubles, basil – 600 rubles, green onions – 300 rubles, cilantro – 300 rubles, mint – 300 rubles.
