The first truck with Uzbek cherries arrived in Novosibirsk last week

EastFruit experts report that the first batch of Uzbek sweet cherries were successfully exported to Russia. According to Bakhtiyor Abduvohidov, a consultant to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the first truck with Uzbek cherries arrived in Novosibirsk last week.

Uzbek wholesalers sold cherries at 550 rubles per kg (the equivalent of $ 7.3 per kg) and the demand for berries at this price clearly exceeded the supply. Most likely, in retail this product will arrive at approximately 1 thousand rubles / kg (more than $ 13 per kg), which will make it possible to make good retail sales.

Currently, in the Ferghana Valley of Uzbekistan, early cherries can be bought from gardeners on average 15,000 Uzbek soums per kg (about $ 1.5 per kg). Accordingly, the earnings of wholesalers when exporting the first batches of cherries from Uzbekistan to Russia, despite the increase in logistics costs, remain quite good.

We remind you that according to EastFruit analysts, Uzbekistan annually exports from 35 to 50 thousand tons of cherries. Russia is the largest importer of cherries in the region, importing, according to official figures, about 75 thousand tons of products per year, and according to EastFruit estimates – more than 100 thousand tons.

A detailed forecast of the development of the situation on the sweet cherry market in the main countries of Europe and Central Asia, taking into account losses from frost, changes in demand due to falling incomes due to the coronary crisis and low oil prices, can be found in our exclusive material.
