This week, the Ukrainian market recorded a positive trend in prices for carrots and beets, according to analysts of the EastFruit project . According to the growers, the rise in prices in this segment was made possible by the intensification of the sales rates of carrots and beets. At the same time, the supply on the Ukrainian market has slightly decreased.
Today, growers in the main production regions deliver high-quality carrots at 4-7.50 UAH/ kg ($ 0.13-0.25 per kg), which is on average 29% more expensive than at the end of the last week. At the same time, prices for table beets increased by an average of 24% over the week, and at the moment the main transactions are carried out in the range of 4-7 UAH/kg ($ 0.13-0.25 / kg).
It should be noted that positive price dynamics is observed only in the segment of high-quality root vegetables that are suitable for storage.
Today carrots in Ukraine are on average 33% more expensive than at the end of August last year. Prices for beetroot increased by an average of 36% over the year. At the same time, market participants do not exclude that the upward trend in prices in this segment may be a temporary phenomenon, since in many regions of Ukraine the harvest of root vegetables is still ongoing.
