Ukraine: Cabbage prices have gone up 50% in one week

Cabbages in Ukraine are expected to continue to rise in price this week. Industry experts players say the consistently high demand for cabbage both in the domestic market and from export-oriented companies is the reason for the increases. At the same time, the supply volumes of cabbage in Ukraine in the current season are much lower than last year, which is due to the reduction in the area planted with white cabbage.

Ukrainian farmers are now selling cabbage no cheaper than 15-17 UAH/kg ($0.52-0.59/kg), which is on average 50% more expensive than at the end of the last work week. According to market experts, the main reason is the re-export of Ukrainian cabbage to Russia through Belarus.

Due to the boom in the cabbage market in Russia, the demand from Belarusian export companies in Ukraine has increased several times over the past week.
