In Ukraine, the price of new cabbage fell again

05/05/2020

A lot of pressure on the cabbage market is exerted by an excess of last year’s products, which some producers are willing to give at prices below cost

Prices for early cabbage in Ukraine continue to fall, according to analysts of the EastFruit project. Market participants consider the reduction in prices to be quite a natural phenomenon, because almost all the southern regions have already connected to the sale, and deliveries are regularly conducted from Transcarpathia.

The main reason for the negative price trends in the cabbage segment of the new crop, manufacturers consider the decrease in demand for these products, as trading in food markets, contrary to expectations, was conducted irregularly. In addition, this week the supply of open cabbage from farmers from Transcarpathia increased on the market, which also put pressure on prices. Thus, today, sales of early cabbage in the main regions of production are carried out at a price of 5-8 UAH / kg ($ 0.19-0.30 / kg), which is on average 48% cheaper than at the end of the last working week.
