Russia runs out of domestic apple stocks


Since the beginning of this week, the price of a quality apple in Russia has increased by an average of 10%

In the storages of most large gardening enterprises in Russia, apple stocks are close to complete depletion, analysts of the APK-Inform: Vegetables and Fruits project report. Against the background of stable demand, this allows Russian gardeners to raise prices, especially for high-quality products.

As a result, only since the beginning of this week the price of a quality apple in Russia has grown by an average of 10%. Today, local farms are ready to ship from 55 to 80 rubles / kg ($ 0.75-1.09 / kg), depending on the caliber and grade of the products offered. At the same time, representatives of the wholesale companies of the Russian Federation say that during the current week there were often problems with the procurement of the necessary volumes of products, since the stocks of apples in local farms were almost exhausted.

In the segment of imported apples, prices also increase, which is caused by interruptions in the supply of these products to the Russian market due to quarantine measures in the main supplying countries, as well as seasonal reduction in apple stocks in exporting countries.

It is worth noting that Russian gardeners today are ready to sell apples on average 30% more than in the same period last year. The project experts explain this price difference by the fact that apple production in Russia this season has noticeably decreased due to abnormal weather conditions in April 2019.
