Round greenhouse tomatoes in Ukraine have significantly increased in price over the past week. At the end of the last week wholesale prices for greenhouse tomatoes were in the range of 50-70 UAH/kg ($1.71-2.39/kg), but the price range increased to 60-80 UAH/kg ($2. 05-2.73/kg) by the end of the current week.
Traditionally, the main supply on the Ukrainian market at this time of the year comes from Turkey, while at least one month remains before the start of a new crop rotation in local greenhouse complexes. There are no problems with the current crop of tomatoes in Turkey, but their prices in Ukraine continue to go up.
Despite the partial migration of the Ukrainian population to European countries, the reduction of consumers in the country’s territories occupied by Russian troops, and the fact that tomatoes are not a primary necessity, prices in the segment keep rising.
