Russian vegetable producers already were disappointed with the current onion prices. Now, they are also looking with unease at the current trends in the cabbage segment. Most producers today are still unable to sell off last year’s cabbage stocks, and the price of 2020 harvest has remained consistently low over the past two months.
At the moment, prices for last year’s cabbage are ranging from10 to16 rubles/kg ($0.13-0.21/kg), but real transactions are not higher than 12-13 rubles/kg ($0.16-0.17/kg) in the southern and central regions of the country. The difficult situation in the cabbage segment is also observed in the Republic of Dagestan, which is its main exporter to the central regions of the Russian Federation. Today, Dagestani producer offer cabbage at 5 rubles/kg ($0.07/kg) and even in this case the demand is closed to zero.
