A sharp increase in the supply of garden strawberries led to a decrease in average wholesale prices

According to EastFruit analysts, today, farmers in the southern regions of Ukraine have sharply increased the supply of strawberry garden open ground. The growth in supply is facilitated by warm and sunny weather, due to which the berry ripens quickly.

A sharp increase in the supply of garden strawberries led to a decrease in average wholesale prices. If a couple of days ago strawberries could be sold even at 65-75 UAH / kg ($ 2.4-2.8 US dollars per kg) in bulk, today prices have dropped to 40-55 UAH / kg ($ 1.5-2, 0 USD per kg). At the same time, farmers are ready to lower the price and willingly enter into negotiations, because they see that visually the number of sellers of strawberries is constantly growing, as well as the volume of its supply.

Only premium-quality berries in expensive packaging sell for more than 55 UAH / kg, and, by the way, the demand for this segment of strawberries remains good enough, because customers are confident in good retail sales. Most often, farmers in the southern regions offer strawberries gardening early Italian varieties of Clery (Clery).

It is expected that in 2-3 days the mass harvesting of garden strawberries in the South will begin, which can lead to an even more dynamic reduction in prices for it. Representatives of the berry freezing enterprises have not yet announced purchase prices, but given the still high supply of the remainder of the 2019 crop from North Africa on the market, they are unlikely to start purchasing until the price of strawberries falls below 30 UAH / kg or even 25 UAH / kg

It is interesting that in the western region of Ukraine there is still a shortage of garden strawberries, although there is already a decrease in average prices for this berry. It was this region that suffered the most from frosts, and the early varieties of strawberries were mainly affected. Therefore, in Lviv today, strawberries of the highest quality are sold in bulk at 65-70 UAH / kg ($ 2.4-2.6 US dollars per kg). However, it is expected that tomorrow, wholesale lots of strawberries from the southern regions will begin to enter the market, and prices will begin to decline.
