EastFruit analysts record high prices for cherry tomatoes in Uzbekistan this season. Despite the decline in prices over the past two months, almost by half, the average wholesale prices are still 60-90% higher compared to last year.
Since the beginning of June 2021, the average wholesale prices for cherry tomatoes in the capital markets of Uzbekistan have decreased from 32,000 soums / kg ($ 3.03) to 17,000 soums / kg ($ 1.59) by mid-August 2021.
Despite this, the current prices for these products remain high. For comparison: the average wholesale prices for cherry tomatoes in the same period of 2019-2020 were much lower: at the beginning of June – 8000-9000 soums / kg ($ 0.79-1.06), and in mid-August – 9000-10,000 ($ 1 , 01-1.07). Thus, if at the beginning of June 2021 cherry tomatoes were more than 3 times more expensive than on the same dates in 2019-2020, then by mid-August 2021 they were 60-90% more expensive. The gap has narrowed more than three times, but still remains large.
Among the countries where EastFruit carries out weekly monitoring of wholesale prices for more than 60 types of fruit and vegetable products, prices for these products are higher only in Russia – $ 2.81 / kg. As of August 12, 2021, the lowest wholesale prices were observed in Moldova ($ 0.68 / kg) and Georgia ($ 0.80 / kg), average price levels – in Belarus ($ 1.0 / kg) and Ukraine ( $ 1.31 / kg).
