The supply of cucumber in local greenhouse factories does not yet fully satisfy domestic demand

Traditionally, before the holidays in Ukraine, the demand for greenhouse vegetables is increasing. Today in the Ukrainian market, according to EastFruit, trading activity in the domestic cucumber segment has noticeably increased. However, due to the seasonal factor, the supply of cucumber in local greenhouse plants does not yet fully satisfy domestic demand, and therefore many key market players have decided to revise the prices of local greenhouse cucumber upwards.

In particular, at the moment, Ukrainian greenhouse plants are offering cucumber at a price of 64-66 UAH / kg ($ 2.59-2.67 / kg) depending on quality, variety and region. Thus, only since the beginning of this week, prices for these products have increased by an average of 14%. According to representatives of greenhouse factories, another increase in prices in the segment of local cucumber is associated with the traditional pre-holiday increase in demand amid a reduction in fees in greenhouses.

It is worth noting that at the moment, the domestic greenhouse cucumber in Ukraine on average already costs 12% more than in the same period last year. At the same time, many market players are confident that in the near future these products may again begin to fall in price under the pressure of an increase in the supply of local cucumber in the market.
