Ukraine: Cucumbers three times cheaper within a week

According to the project "APK-Inform: Vegetables and Fruits", the price index for fresh produce in Ukraine for the previous week (from 19 to 25 September 2015) dropped by 7.3% after last week's 2.9% increase. One of the main reasons for the fall in prices was the blockade of shipments to the Crimea, which has resulted in a situation of oversupply in the domestic market.

"The biggest role in the fall of the price index last week has been played by cucumbers, which have become almost three times cheaper as a result of the halt in shipments to the Crimea," says Tatiana Getman, Head of "APK-Inform: Vegetables and Fruits". "The same factor has had a negative impact on the domestic apple market."

At the same time onion prices increased, as the season is coming to an end. The slight decline in the prices of cabbage and carrots was a consequence of the growth of demand. In general, the cost of the Borshchov set increased by 3.7% compared to the previous week, while the price of potatoes dropped by 21.9%.
