Carrot prices in Poland continue to fall rapidly. Last week, according to data from the daily monitoring of the EastFruit project, these root crops became about 21% cheaper on average in just a few days.
Producers reported to be selling their carrots for $ 0.21-0.34 / kg. According to market operators, the rather sharp decline in prices is due to the seasonal increase in the supply. Also, a very low demand for the product is putting even more pressure on prices. Wholesale companies and retail chains are only willing to purchase the root crop in small batches, given the extremely low rates of retail sales.
It is worth adding that at the moment, carrot prices in Poland are still higher than in the same period last year. Producers say that while the supply of carrots in the market is growing, the demand is going down, so growers will have to consider further price reductions in this segment.
