Last year, prices for potatoes began to rise in Russia, EastFruit analysts say According to market operators, such trends are caused by a further reduction in the supply of high-quality products. In addition, most farmers even report the completion of the sales season.

So, today, producers ship potatoes of the harvest of 2019 at a price of 12-20 rubles / kg ($ 0.17-0.28 / kg) depending on the quality, grade and volume of the batch, which is on average 15% more expensive than late last week.

According to market operators, farmers manage to raise prices for potatoes due to seasonal reduction in supply in conditions of stable demand. It is also worth noting that wholesale companies often complain about the lack of quality potatoes from producers, which does not allow them to form a sufficient number of lots for purchase.

As a result, the potato harvest of 2019 in the Russian market is already on average 20% more expensive than in the same period last year. At the same time, most major market players are confident that the price increase in this segment will continue until the mass harvest of new crops on the potato market.
