Onion supply doubled, while potatoes and root crops decreased. Weekly EastFruit Trade Platform Analysis


Among the leaders of activity were suppliers of vegetables and fruits from Russia, Uzbekistan, Belarus and Ukraine

Over the past week, the audience of the largest fruit and vegetable trading group EastFruit Trade Platform has increased to 6,600 participants. We bring to your attention an analysis of the dynamics of offers on this site.

During this period, representatives of 12 countries placed their ads in the group. As a week earlier, the most active participants were from Russia. Also among the leaders of activity were suppliers of fruits and vegetables from Uzbekistan, Belarus and Ukraine. Over the week, the number of ads placed by companies from the Russian Federation increased, while from other countries it decreased slightly. At the same time, participants from Georgia and Armenia began to place offers much more actively – they offered greens for sale, and representatives of Greece – strawberry (strawberries).

As last week, the site was dominated by advertisements for the sale of borscht vegetables: potatoes, carrots, beets, cabbage and onions, which is consistent with the seasonal trend. Moreover, the number of onion sales more than doubled, probably due to increased demand and rising prices. The number of offers of greenhouse cucumbers has also sharply increased. But the supply of potatoes, carrots and beets for the week decreased slightly.

In the fruit and berry segment, as before, proposals for the sale of apples prevailed, the number of which also increased – apparently many suppliers are trying to sell stocks of products.

Below we offer a graph of the dynamics of proposals for key positions.

Product purchase announcements were published much less frequently than sales offers. As a week earlier, the demand for potatoes prevailed. Along with this, buyers of onions and apples intensified.

The EastFruit Fruittechnology technology group, like last week, was dominated by advertisements for the sale of fertilizers and seedlings. The supply of seed potatoes has also increased. You can also highlight the trend of increasing the number of proposals for the sale of packaging and storage containers.

Despite the fact that the price indicated in the announcement greatly increases the chances of selling products, most participants prefer to remain silent about this. Below we offer an analysis of the price level of offers in Russia.

Prices of the EastFruit Trade Platform trading group (Russia)

Compared to last week, one can single out the increase in prices for onions, young cabbage and tomatoes. There was a reduction in the spread in prices for cucumber, beets and cabbage.

For a full analysis of prices for other countries there is not enough data, but you can select individual products. In Ukraine, potatoes were offered on average at 8-10 UAH / kg, and onions – at 11 UAH / kg. In Kyrgyzstan, 22.5 Russian rubles were requested for onions, and in Kazakhstan – 110 tenge.

We remind you that if the price, place of shipment, quality, packaging and other parameters of the product are indicated in the announcement, then the chances of its sale increase many times. You can read more about the rules for effective promotion of fruits and vegetables in Telegram here.
