No New Year surprises. Greenhouse vegetables in the region continued to rise in price

The general situation on the greenhouse vegetables market in the countries of the EastFruit project monitoring region continued to develop according to the standard scenario and during the last week of the outgoing year. At the same time, project analysts nevertheless identified a number of noteworthy moments in the segments of greenhouse tomatoes and cucumbers.

As for price trends, in most cases they retained the previously established vector for increase, and at the same time, there were some cases of drastic changes in them, in particular, in the segment of greenhouse tomatoes.

Tomato prices as of Dec 27, 2019

Throughout the past week, round red greenhouse tomato rose in price in Russia, Georgia, Tajikistan and, less noticeably, in Poland. Moreover, even a slight increase in prices for these products, by only 5 cents over the past seven days, allowed Poland to take the lead in the rating of countries with the highest prices for greenhouse tomatoes in the region. According to market operators, in the above countries there was a high demand for tomatoes on the eve of the holidays, and at the same time there was no excess supply in the segments of both local and imported products.

In Ukraine, where a week earlier the highest prices for greenhouse tomatoes were recorded in the region, a sharp increase in the supply of products on the market led to the establishment of negative price trends. But again, on the eve of the holidays, sellers in Ukraine did not have to make significant concessions to customers, and after the previous price tags fell by 7 cents, the pace of trade stabilized. The company Ukraine last week was Moldova, where market operators also noted a slight decrease in prices in the segment of greenhouse tomatoes.

Cucumber prices as of Dec 27, 2019

On the market for long smooth greenhouse cucumbers in the region, project analysts practically did not notice an excess of supply throughout the entire reporting period. And this product fell in price only in Tajikistan, where a long smooth cucumber was offered at the lowest prices in the monitoring region, an average of $ 1.08 / kg.

In most countries, this type of cucumber continued to rise in price, and in Georgia, after a jump in prices to the level of $ 1.92 / kg, this position became the most expensive among all the countries analyzed.

EastFruit specialists also noted price increases for long smooth cucumbers in Uzbekistan, Belarus and the Russian Federation.

Gherkin prices as of Dec 27, 2019

An acute shortage of supply in the Georgian market over the past week was also noted in the segment of short tuberous cucumber, and their prices there rose by 71 cents over the past seven days. Short cucumber appreciably rose in price in Moldova and Uzbekistan, and less significantly in Belarus.

In the Russian Federation and Ukraine, the prices for this cucumber practically did not change throughout the entire reporting period, but, according to market participants, in the last days before the New Year the situation could change dramatically, as the main external suppliers of these products reported the impossibility of forming 100% required batch volumes upon prior orders.
