Farmers of Ukraine are forced to reduce the price of early cabbage again

05/21/2020

Wholesale companies and retailers prefer to purchase in small batches, given the relatively short lead time for cabbage

According to EastFruit project analysts, in the Ukrainian market there is a tendency to lower prices for early white cabbage. The main reason for the negative price adjustments in this segment, manufacturers call the seasonal increase in the supply of new cabbage, as well as a fairly low demand for these products.

So, today the 2020 cabbage is offered for sale in the range of 4.5-6 UAH / kg ($ 0.17-0.23 / kg), which is on average 17% cheaper than at the end of the last working week.

First of all, farmers are forced to actively reduce prices for new cabbage due to excess supply on the market: most Ukrainian households have already begun mass shipments of early cabbage. Also, the situation is aggravated by the rather low sales rate of these products. Wholesale companies and retail chains prefer to make purchases in small batches, given the relatively short shelf life of this vegetable.

We add that a similar situation in the early cabbage market was noted in early May of the previous year. The price in this segment also fell sharply, mainly due to the massive sales of open ground products. However, a year ago, early cabbage in Ukraine went on sale an average of 13% more expensive than today.
