According to the latest estimates by the GUS (Central Statistical Office), the harvest of white cabbage in Poland will amount to 0.7 million tons this year. This is 100 thousand tons less than a year ago, EastFruit reports with reference to the fresh-market website.
Despite the decline in yields, selling prices on the Polish market for white cabbage are still very low. Wholesale companies and retail chains are trying to reduce cabbage prices. Many market participants note that the growersare partly to blame for this, as they agree to sell their products at reduced prices.
Currently, the prices for white cabbage in Poland are only 0.45-0.50 PLN/kg ($0.11-0.13/kg). The demand is quite low today, and the supply of white cabbage continues to grow, since the harvesting of its later varieties is underway now.
Note that there will not be much high-quality white cabbage in the current season, because the weather during the growing season affected its quality characteristics. Key market players expect an increase in selling prices for white cabbage in the second half of the season.
