In most regions of Ukraine, the price of mushroom for all sales channels has stabilized at yesterday’s levels. Fixed indicators are also retained in the context of the demand for mushroom products. However, in the Central region, the demand for mushroom is starting to grow.
In the Central region of Ukraine, the cost of champignon leveled off due to a significant reduction in the difference between the upper and lower borders of its selling price. From farms, mushrooms today are released mainly at a price of not less than 11.0-12.0 UAH / kg. Nevertheless, according to market participants, the demand for their products has begun to grow noticeably. Compared to last week, when mushroom growers were desperately looking for channels for marketing their products, the current situation, when buyers themselves are actively ordering mushrooms from the producer, can be regarded as a signal of activation of demand for the mushroom as a whole.
In western Ukraine, the demand for champignon and its cost indicators remain unchanged. Market Shuvar trades in mushrooms at yesterday’s price – 14.0-15.0 UAH / kg, from households, products are still sold at 12.0-13.0 UAH / kg. Champignons continue to be shipped to supermarkets at prices ranging from 15.0 to 18.0 UAH / kg. The overall level of demand for mushroom remains not high. Nevertheless, according to the information of mushroom producers in the region, there has been less fungus on the market, which is likely to positively affect sales volumes in the near future.
In the southern region – also unchanged. The price of champignon for wholesale is 18.0-21.0 UAH / kg. In supermarkets, the mushroom continues to be released at 21.0 UAH / kg. Nevertheless, as the region’s mushroom producers predict, in order to stimulate demand, the selling price of the mushroom may decrease slightly in the near future..
In eastern Ukraine, the price of champignon at the moment also remains unchanged. Demand for mushrooms is still not high, therefore, the situation with prices remains unchanged. The average cost of champignon in the region as a whole is 14.0-20.0 UAH / kg for wholesale and 16.0-20.0 UAH / kg for supermarkets. Nevertheless, the producers of the region are still optimistic, expecting that by the end of the week, sales of champignon in the region will still grow.
