According to EastFruit, the active growth in the supply of potatoes and carrots in the countries monitored by the project led in most cases to negative price changes in the markets.
The most expensive potatoes were still offered in Poland, where prices for the week remained virtually unchanged and reached their maximum limits of $ 0,45 / kg. Meanwhile, in Ukraine, amid an active harvesting campaign and inactive sales, farmers were forced to cut prices by 11% to $ 0,28-0,32 / kg. Potatoes were offered in Belarus for a bit cheaper: an average of $ 0,29 / kg.
Georgia became the record holder of the week in terms of the decline in prices for these products: during the reporting period, potatoes fell 12% in the Georgian market to $ 0,27 / kg. Prices also decreased in Georgia, Moldova and Russia, where they fell by 7-11% over the week.
Meanwhile, the situation in the countries of Central Asia was ambiguous: if in Uzbekistan potatoes fell again after price growth a week earlier, then in Tajikistan, on the contrary, the average price soared by a quarter, and the maximum figures reached $ 0,35 / kg.
The situation in the carrot market was more stable, but, nevertheless, prices in four countries (Poland, Russia, Moldova, Uzbekistan) fell by 11-16% over the past week. The most expensive carrots were offered in Tajikistan at prices ranging from $ 0,37-0,53 / kg, and the bulk of the offer was products imported from neighboring Uzbekistan.
In turn, despite active exports, Uzbek producers failed to raise prices for their products, and by the end of the week their range was $ 0,23-0,27 / kg. A little more expensive carrots were offered in Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine.
