Due to unfavorable weather conditions, the quality of cabbage in the current season has significantly decreased

The wholesale price for white cabbage is gradually decreasing in Ukraine, according to analysts of the EastFruit project. The market operators associate the downward price dynamics with the seasonal increase in the supply of these products. At the same time, trading activity in the market remains rather low, which puts additional pressure on prices.

Today, white cabbage is offered for sale at 3-4.5 UAH / kg ($ 0.11-0.16 / kg), which is 12% cheaper on average than at the end of the last working week.

Manufacturers explain the negative price trend in the segment of white cabbage by several factors. So, due to unfavorable weather conditions, the quality of cabbage in the current season has significantly decreased. As a result, buyers are increasingly refusing to purchase large volumes: wholesale companies and retail chains buy cabbage only in small batches for current sales, citing a very limited sales period for this product.

It should be noted that, despite the decline in prices, at the moment the wholesale price for cabbage in Ukraine is on average 12% higher than at the end of September 2019. At the same time, there are no prerequisites for improving the situation in this segment, since many producers have not yet started harvesting cabbage of late varieties, the prices for which are traditionally announced at a higher level.
