The price of white cabbage of the new harvest in Ukraine is on a downward trend.
Market participants attribute the trend in prices for early cabbage to the seasonal increase in its local supply. Also, demand is not very high.
According to growers, heavy rains across most of Ukraine have already had a detrimental effect on the quality of the new harvest of white cabbage. High humidity and heavy rainfall negatively affected the quality, as a result, cabbage started to crack. Representatives of wholesale companies are already refusing to purchase large volumes of white cabbage because of this.
As a result, today most producers offer early cabbage for sale at 2-4 UAH/kg ($ 0.07-0.15/kg), which is on average 33% cheaper than at the end of the last work week.
