The supply of garden strawberries from local households has significantly decreased this week due to adverse weather conditions

In Ukraine, garden strawberries (strawberries) began to rise in price, EastFruit project analysts said. According to market operators, price increases in the domestic strawberry segment were made possible due to a sharp decrease in the supply of this berry from Ukrainian households.

So, at the moment, Ukrainian producers offer strawberries at a price of 80-120 UAH / kg ($ 2.96-4.44 / kg), which is on average 1.5 times more expensive than a week earlier.

According to gardeners, several factors contribute to price increases. First of all, they manage to raise prices due to very active demand in this segment. In addition, the supply of garden strawberries from local households has significantly decreased this week due to adverse weather conditions, which also contributes to price growth.

At the same time, it is worth noting that today the prices for strawberry garden in Ukraine are already on average 40% higher than in the same period last year. At the same time, most Ukrainian gardeners plan to raise the price of their products further. They argue their actions by the fact that cool weather does not contribute to the rapid ripening of berries, and in the near future the supply of strawberries of domestic production is unlikely to increase.
