In Moldova, a significant reduction in prices for strawberries will occur no earlier than mid-May

In mid-May, a relatively large number of local wild strawberries grown in open ground will begin to enter the RM market.

Over the last week of April, as EastFruit reported, the average wholesale price of strawberry in Moldova fell to $ 3.63 / kg (from $ 4.10 / kg in the middle of the month). In the country’s wholesale markets, prices for imported and local (greenhouse) berries – $ 3.35 / kg and $ 3.91 / kg, respectively – continue to converge.

At the same time, the supply volumes and stocks of imported (Greek and Turkish) strawberries are reduced, which opens up a “window of opportunity” for domestic producers – a chance to sell products grown in greenhouses, at least “not in minus”. The market is close to equilibrium – supply covers solvent demand without excess. The Association of Berry Producers “Pomușoarele Moldovei” believes that this condition – possibly with minimal adjustments to lower the price level – will last until mid-May, when Moldovan strawberries grown in open ground will begin to enter the Moldovan market in a relatively large amount.

Representatives of the association note that the rainfall throughout the country (from 35-40 mm in the north to 20-25 mm in the south) was extremely useful, did not lead to flushing and did not slow down the pace of work (lining rows between straws) on the berries. The prognosis for continued rains at the beginning of this week is considered by producers of berries to be favorable and very encouraging.
