Tomato prices in Ukraine down for third week in a row

Due to the growing supply of local greenhouses and rather strong competition from imports, there has been a further price drop in the tomato market in Ukraine. Back in late May, Ukrainian greenhouses sold tomatoes at 50-80 UAH/kg ($1.69-2.70/kg), but due to the seasonal factor and the constant availability of imports on the local market, prices kept declining.

To date, prices for locally produced red round greenhouse tomatoes have fallen to 30-50 UAH/kg ($1.01-1.69/kg). At the same time, their main buyers have almost no complaints about the quality of Ukrainian greenhouse tomatoes, which, nevertheless, does not help local greenhouse complexes.

There are plenty of imported tomatoes on the Ukrainian market. As of mid-June, greenhouse tomatoes from Turkey are offered in Ukraine cheaper. In the premium segment of the Ukrainian market, there are also tomatoes from Poland and the Netherlands.
