“Today, prices for local strawberries vary between $ 3.55 - $ 5.4 per kilogram, which is on average 15% more expensive than at the end of that work week. The rise in prices in this segment was supported not only by a decrease in the supply of domestic berries in the Russian market, but also by demand, which remained at a fairly high level, ”the East-Fruit profile portal said.
The second reason for the increase in prices for strawberries is a reduction in imports of these products.
“This week, deliveries of cheaper Turkish and Serbian berries significantly decreased. At present, imported strawberries from Egypt are on the Russian market at an average price of $ 6.17 per kilogram and from Armenia with an average cost of $ 7.71 per kilogram, ”they explained.
It is emphasized that starting next week, the price for local berry may decrease, as the weather conditions in the southern regions of the country normalize and the amount of strawberry harvest in local farms will increase, which will negatively affect the price.
