Throughout Ukraine begins to increase the level of supply of fresh mushrooms. The cells of many mushroom producers, laid down under the May holidays and the last week of Lent, are already beginning to collect the first wave. However, according to market participants, the principal amount of the fungus appears only to the middle of the week. Meanwhile, the level of consumer demand for champignon still remains at the previous level, which has already led to some reduction in the cost of the fungus. Details – later in the review.
With the advent of larger amounts of fresh mushrooms in the Central region, its value continued to decline. The main reason – to maintain a low level of consumer demand for the fungus throughout Ukraine. Especially noticeable decrease in the segment of wholesale trade, both within and outside the region. Wholesale market Troyeshchyna champignons good quality trades today on 14.0 UAH / kg, while the mushroom of lower quality can be bought for UAH 12,5-13,0 / kg. For the manufacturer, this situation means to sell their products, giving it to the market, he can with a maximum of 12.5 UAH / kg, and then with the proviso that the fungus is an excellent quality. The cost of the Kiev fungus for wholesale buyers from other regions also fell today. The average price of first grade fungus was established at the level of 13.0 UAH / kg. However, according to information received from some mushroom producers, still manage to gain and 13.5 UAH / kg. mushroom price of lower quality in this channel sales varies within 10,0-12,0 UAH / kg. The main reason for reduction – mainly the saturation of domestic markets in most regions. champignon cost supermarkets also fell slightly. If today the average price of the fungus in this sales channel was still at the level of 20,0-21,0 UAH / kg, then tomorrow the average cost of mushroom supply is established at the level of 19,0-20,0 UAH / kg. According to market participants, expect much improvement in the situation with the prices and demand for the fungus this week is not necessary. Possible increase in the level of consumer demand just for the weekend may occur in the region, but most likely, it will not be displayed on the mushroom price. Thus, according to forecasts of mushroom producers, mushroom price for this week will be held at the present level. And it is – in the best cases, because some market participants do not exclude its further decline.
In western Ukraine, the cost of mushroom at the moment remains largely the same, though the amount of the fungus, as well as in all other areas, is increasing. According to market participants, in such a situation by lowering them could save himself the consumer, whose level of demand, at least in the wholesale sector in recent years, even slightly increased. mushroom in the wholesale cost Shuvar the market currently remains at the level of 16,0-16,5 UAH / kg, while the manufacturer of the fungus continues to flow at 14,0-15,0 UAH / kg. Price mushroom supermarket region also remains without any changes – 20.0 UAH / kg for the city shops, 19.0 UAH / kg – for the supermarkets of other areas of the region. However, according to the vendor stores, special improving consumer demand in their sector at the moment is not observed.
Increasing the amount of fresh mushroom and occurred in the South of Ukraine. And although the demand for it at the moment remains the same, the price more mushroom held at levels of the previous period. The cost of the fungus for supermarkets is still at the level of 24.0 UAH / kg, the price for champignon wholesale customers – varies between 22,0-24,0 UAH / kg. According to the largest producers in the region, to lower the price of the mushroom ahead of the holidays – is meaningless, because, when the demand for their products will increase, the difference in price can be more significant, which could have a negative impact on the mood of customers. Thus, in the near future of mushroom producers are planning to hold at the same level prices for champignon mainly due to expansion of the geography of sales and, if necessary, and by reducing the proportion of the implementation of fresh mushroom.
A little different from the general picture of the situation in Ukraine with sales and the cost of the fungus and in the Eastern region. Consumer demand is still low, meanwhile, mushroom production volumes are also growing. The average cost of mushroom on Gorlovki wholesale market decreased by an average of 1.5-2.0 UAH / kg up to a mark of 19.0 UAH / kg. In general, the region of the fungus in the price segment of wholesale sales, depending on the product quality and purchase volumes, already ranges within 16,0-20,0 UAH / kg. champignon cost for supermarkets in the region still remains at the same level 18,0-22,0 UAH / kg. However, according to market participants, this cost is at most manually adjustable and, most likely, in the near future, too, may fall, that according to some manufacturers, has already taken place.
