Project analysts Eastfruit it is reported that there is a deficit in the supply of white cabbage on the Russian market. This week, demand from retail chains and wholesale companies has risen sharply, which, against the backdrop of limited supply, allows manufacturers to raise their selling prices.
According to EastfruitDuring the week, prices for white cabbage in Russia increased by an average of 11%. Today, farmers offer these products at 27-38 rubles / kg ($ 0,36-0,51 / kg). Producers were able to increase the price of white cabbage by reducing the supply of this vegetable from small farms, which were selling directly from the field. In anticipation of further growth in prices, the owners of high-quality cabbage currently prefer to restrain sales.
The price of white cabbage in the Russian Federation today is on average 3,5 times higher than in the same period last year. Most market participants predict its further rise in price.
