Potato and carrot prices declined in most countries, with the exception of Moldova and Poland
According to EastFruit, Poland turned out to be the only country monitoring the project this week, where potato prices, albeit slightly, rose to $ 0,36-0,46 / kg. Meanwhile, in the rest of the world, prices were mostly falling.
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%), as previously reported in a separate material. Belarus did not lag behind the Russian market, although here prices decreased less significantly: by 11% over the week. Meanwhile, in Georgia, potatoes fell by 28%, and the most significant rate of price reduction was 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 ranged from $ 0,66-0,77 / kg. Meanwhile, Belarus went down from first to second place at prices, where they fell 13% to $ 0,64 / kg. Georgia and Uzbekistan were the record holders in the pace of price collapse: in both countries, prices fell by a third at the end of the week. Less significant (only 15%) cheaper carrots 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.
