Prices for last year's products rose in Russia and Moldova. In Ukraine, carrots of the 2018 harvest fell in price, and farmers began the season for the supply of early products.
По данным EastFruit, рынок картофеля и моркови в странах региона мониторинга проекта находится в логической стадии завершения уходящего сезона: запасы продукции урожая 2018 г. практически исчерпаны, а ранние картофель и морковь вскоре начнут отыгрывать ключевую роль в рыночных тенденциях.
Last week, last year's potato prices rose only in Russia and Moldova. Moreover, while in the Russian market the price increase was only 8%, and the share of domestic products was still quite high, prices in Moldova soared by 62%, and Belarus was the main supplier of last year's potatoes. As a result, Moldova took the lead in prices in the project monitoring region, and their average level was fixed at $ 0,72 / kg at the end of the week.
Meanwhile, potato producers from the southern regions of Ukraine and Transcarpathia reported increasing supplies of new crop domestic products. As a result, by the end of the week, the average price of Ukrainian early potatoes managed to drop to $ 0,57 / kg.
In Russia, this market segment was still represented by imported products, while Azerbaijan and Egypt remained the key suppliers. As a result of the week, the price in the Russian market decreased by 6% to $ 0,62 / kg.
