Tomato prices rise in Russia due to lack of supplies from Turkey


The supply of tomatoes from the foreign market decreased, which was associated with the termination of the supply of tomatoes from Turkey

This week, the supply of greenhouse tomatoes in the Russian market declined again, EastFruit project analysts said. Most Russian representatives of greenhouse plants reported that they plan to begin mass implementation of a new turnover of tomatoes at the end of March. At the same time, stationary greenhouses shipped tomatoes to the market in minimal volumes.

Supply from the foreign market also declined. First of all, it was connected with the cessation of tomato supplies from Turkey. The Russian market was mainly attended by imported products from Azerbaijan and Egypt. However, imported tomatoes were not enough to satisfy the high demand that persisted all week.

Thus, representatives of wholesale companies actively increased selling prices for both local tomatoes and imported products. So, today tomatoes from domestic greenhouses go on sale in the range of 150-200 rubles / kg ($ 2.28-3.04 / kg), which is on average 15% more expensive than a week earlier. Meanwhile, imported products went on sale at a price of 150-210 rubles / kg ($ 2.28-3.19 / kg), which is on average 33% more expensive than at the end of the last working week.

At the same time, it is worth noting that the price of domestic tomatoes in Russia today is already an average of 20% higher than in the same period last year. The price of imported products for the year increased by an average of 33%.
