Potato and carrot prices declined in most countries, with the exception of Moldova and Poland
According to EastFruit, this week Poland was the only country monitored by the project, where prices for potatoes, albeit slightly, but rose to $ 0,36-0,46 / kg. Meanwhile, in the rest of the countries, prices mostly declined.
One of the sharpest rates of falling prices was recorded in Ukraine: -23% per week against the background of continued growth in the supply of new crop potatoes in the country. As a result, Ukraine fell from first to fourth place in the rating of prices for these products, and the leader's position moved to Moldova, where prices have changed little this week, remaining at $ 0,44 / kg.
A collapse in the price of potatoes was also recorded in Russia (-16%), which was previously reported in a separate article. Belarus did not lag behind the Russian market, although here prices fell less significantly: by 11% by the end of the week. Meanwhile, in Georgia, potatoes fell in price by 28%, and the most significant rate of price decline was observed in Uzbekistan, where at the end of the week the cheapest potatoes from the countries of the project monitoring region were offered.
Similar to the potato segment, the most expensive carrots from the countries of the EastFruit monitoring region were offered in Moldova, where prices varied in the range of $ 0,66-0,77 / kg. Meanwhile, Belarus dropped from first to second place in terms of prices, where prices fell by 13% to $ 0,64 / kg. The record holders in terms of the rate of price collapse were Georgia and Uzbekistan: in both countries, prices fell by a third by the end of the week. Less significant (only 15%) fell in price for carrots and in Tajikistan.
At the same time, in Ukraine, Poland and Russia, the price situation has not changed, and the growth in the supply of domestic products of the new crop was more than offset by the consistently high demand from buyers.
