High demand and limited supply caused aan increase in prices on the Ukrainian onion market

A new price increase is noted on the onion market in Ukraine, analysts of the EastFruit project report. High demand from wholesalers and limited offer from growers are the main factors contributing to further price growth in the segment.

Growers have gradually raised prices, and today onions are sold at 25-29 UAH/kg ($0.68-0.79/kg), which is on average 13% more expensive than at the end of the last week.

According to experts, the main reason for the rise in onion prices is the suspended harvesting in many farms due to rainy weather, which has significantly reduced the supply of onions on the market. Analysts also report that growers prefer to store most of the good-quality onions, selling them only in small batches.

Onions on the Ukrainian market are currently on average 4.3 times more expensive than at the end of September 2021. At the same time, many market players believe that the positive price trend will continue, since many growers not owning storage facilities have managed to sell a large part of onion stocks. The rest of the growers prefer to store onions and refrain from selling in anticipation of further price increases.
