Turkish situation puts pressure on fruit and veg prices in Ukraine

Turkish fruit and vegetable prices have already been undermined by the Turkish-Russian conflict in the Ukrainian market, since "Russia does no longer accept many Turkish products," affirms Olga Mozgova, of the company Ukragroconsult.

"Now is the peak season for citrus, persimmons and pomegranates and Turkey is a major supplier of these fruits in Ukraine, Russia and Poland. Prices are consequently falling, given that Turkey has to compete, for example, with the mandarins from Georgia and the pomegranates from Azerbaijan. According to her, greenhouse vegetables have also become cheaper because of the warm weather, which reduces heating costs. 

"Turkish mandarins have seen their prices drop by three hryvnia* this week, reaching 25 per kilo; lemons and persimmons have dropped by five hryvnia," reports a trader at Kiev's Dnipro market.
