Moldova: Wholesale prices of late raspberries exceeded prices for early ones

Over the past week, wholesale prices for raspberries in Moldova increased by an average of 5 MDL/kg – up to 65 MDL/kg ($3.09/kg). Raspberries have been rising in price for the third week. Last week, the minimum prices pulled up to their average level, while the maximum prices reached 70 lei/kg ($3.64/kg).

The average wholesale price for raspberries at the moment has already exceeded last year’s level (although in dollar terms it still lags behind it a little: $3.09/kg against $3.43/kg).

However the most interesting fact is that the level of wholesale prices for late raspberries exceeded the level of prices for early raspberries. This doesn’t happen often.

According to experts from the Association of Berry Producers Pomușoarele Moldovei, the increase in the price of raspberries in mid-September is due to two factors. The first is a cold snap, accompanied by rains, which complicate the process of harvesting from open fields. The second is the arrival on the market of high-quality (large and well-colored) raspberries of remontant Polish varieties.
