Ukraine: prices for greenhouse tomatoes began to decline at the end of the season

Ukrainian growers are forced to reduce prices for greenhouse tomatoes, despite their current season coming to an end, analysts of the EastFruit project report. The main reason for the reduction in the price of greenhouse tomatoes was the presence on the market of large volumes of substandard products.

Local greenhouses ship tomatoes at 20-27 UAH/kg ($0.77-1.04/kg) today, which is on average 18% cheaper than at the end of the last week.

It should be noted that the main offer on the Ukrainian market now is Turkish tomato, the exports of which to Ukraine started at the beginning of this month. Imported tomatoes are sold at 22-30 UAH/kg ($0.84-1.15/kg), which is on average 14% cheaper than at the month.

The prices for greenhouse tomatoes in Ukraine are on average 10% lower now than in the same period last year. The next cycle of local greenhouse tomatoes should start in February, but today this remains in question, since most of the representatives of greenhouse complexes have not yet decided whether they will grow tomatoes in the next cycle due to a sharp rise in energy prices.

We will discuss more details of the trade in greenhouse vegetables in Ukrainian supermarkets chains on December 2 at the first international conference “Retail Forum-2021”. Investments in fruit and vegetable production in greenhouses will be covered the next day, December 3, at the 17th International conference “Vegetables and fruits of Ukraine-2021. New investment opportunities”.
