06/16/2020

The supply of garden strawberries in the market has increased so much that prices for it began to decline sharply in all regions of Ukraine.

As EastFruit already reported, over the weekend, harvesting of strawberry (strawberry) strawberries began in the northern and western regions of Ukraine, which had an impact on pricing. Berry prices in the south were higher than in other areas of the country.

Today, June 16, 2020, the supply of garden strawberries in the market has increased so much that prices for it began to decline sharply in all regions. In the morning, at wholesale markets in Kiev, strawberries could be bought at 40-50 UAH / kg ($ 1.5-1.9 US dollars per kg). Sales of berries from the field were carried out on average by 35 UAH / kg $ 1.3 dollars). Although on Monday, prices for strawberries when sold from farms were on average one and a half to two times higher.

In the western region, the prices of strawberries were even lower – they sold small berries at prices from 25 UAH / kg (93 US cents per kg), although for products of higher quality they had to pay much more – cheaper than 40 UAH / kg ($ 1.5 dollar per kg) this berry is not sold.

The highest prices were for strawberries in the southern regions of the country. Here, farmers managed to sell it in small wholesale at prices from 55 UAH / kg ($ 2.1 dollars) on average. At the same time, the number of products offered also increased. It is possible that in the near future strawberries will begin to be delivered to the southern regions from the central regions of Ukraine.

At such a rate of price decline, frost gardeners can start a new season this week. According to preliminary estimates by experts from the Ukrainian Fruit and Vegetable Association (UPOA), it will be beneficial for producers of deep-frozen berries IQF to purchase strawberries, provided that the average wholesale price is reduced to about 25 UAH / kg.
