There is a shortage of quality cabbage in the Ukrainian market

In most regions of Ukraine agreements are concluded at 4-5,5 UAH / kg, in the western regions the prices often reach up to 6 UAH / kg.
In the Ukrainian market there is a rather limited supply of high quality white cabbage. This is evidenced by the daily monitoring of the project “APK-Inform: Vegetables and Fruits”.
According to the publication, many large farms continue to refuse the active implementation of quality cabbage in the hope of selling products on more favorable terms. At the same time, demand in this segment is gradually increasing. This allows other producers to raise their selling prices.
In most regions of the country, contracts are made at 4-5,5 UAH / kg, in the western regions of the price and quite often reach up to 6 UAH / kg. Thus, for a week of high quality cabbage in the Ukrainian market went up by 11-14%.
Experts point out that the market has noticeably increased the supply of non-standard cabbage, whose quality has significantly deteriorated as a result of the first wave of cold weather. The farmers are ready to sell such produce from 1.5 UAH / kg. It should be emphasized that a year earlier in such a price range voiced prices for high quality cabbage. Thus, quality cabbage is currently costing wholesale buyers 2.5-2.7 times more expensive than in the first half of December 2017. /
