According to information obtained from market participants, much hype on mushroom production in the Central region of Ukraine today is not there. Moreover, if in the beginning of the week wholesale buyers aggressively looking mushroom known to them all manufacturers today that most manufacturers increasingly are left to look for a buyer for their products. According to the mushroom, it is associated with a relative increase in mushroom production volumes in the region. Nevertheless, it is worth noting that from the beginning of the week, the level of demand on the part of wholesalers, and by the final consumer, is still up. Thus, supply and demand for mushrooms in the Central region of Ukraine is still largely in balance with each other, which has a positive effect on the processes of formation of the prices of products. As a result, the cost of mushroom on the wholesale market “Farmer” (Troyeshchyna), currently remains at the same level 16,0-16,5 UAH / kg (at times reaching the level of 17.0 USD / kg, but still not exceeding her), the manufacturer of the product continues to flow at an average price of 15.0 USD / kg.

Meanwhile, the South of Ukraine, according to local mushroom producers, much higher demand for their products is not recorded. The reason for this, according to market participants, lies in the appearance on the market of fresh fruits and vegetables, which are currently very popular.
