At the moment, the main trend in the market of cultivated mushrooms Ukraine still remains the search for high-quality mushroom. They are looking for him, both in the West and in the East and in the Center of Ukraine. In the South, seem to have such products, but production volumes of its production exactly enough to meet the demand in the region. However, according to recent reports in the near future, the market situation may change. About this – later in the review.
The cost of a perfect mushroom in the Central region, which at the moment is a measure of the total sales, remains the same. The wholesale market “Farmer” is selling its 16.0 UAH / kg, buying from the manufacturer at 14.0 UAH / kg, because of this fungus on the market at the moment is not a lot. On the other hand fungus lower quality and wholesalers give 15.0 grn / kg and 14.0 grn / kg, respectively, for his buying 12,0-13,0 grn / kg manufacturer. There are on the market and cheaper goods, which can be purchased kilos and 5.0-6.0 UAH / kg. The cost of the Kiev mushroom in the trade segment with the other regions remained at the previous level – 14,5-15,0 UAH / kg. Mushrooms in a supermarket gets the average price – 19.0 UAH / kg. However, according to available information, observed at the moment the trend starts to go down. Sharp arrival of high temperature period, which caught many manufacturers by surprise, had an impact on yields of mushroom. Many mushroom pickers for various reasons did not have time to “regroup”, which subsequently led to the fact that their products are to be not the best quality. Now, most of mushroom producers, the remaining work in the summer, “acclimatized” and the quality of their subsequent crop is expected to be higher. Therefore, in the near future should significantly reduce the amount of production is not high quality, which will come to replace the fungus first grade. It may be displayed on the price of this mushroom, as its deficit, at least in the domestic market of the region, will disappear, with the result that is likely to lead to a reduction in the framework of the price of the fungus and the stabilization of its value in the segment of wholesale trade at an average mark of 15, 0-15,5 UAH / kg, which is held at a level of up to about the end of June. At the same time, the cost of the fungus in other channels of its implementation (trade regions and supply in supermarkets), according to forecasts of market participants, will not change.
Confirmation of the above theory, find its reflection in the change of pricing trends in the fungus, which is currently already in place in the domestic market of the Western region of Ukraine. According to local mushroom producers in the region begins to emerge a new fungus, the quality of which is superior to the results of the past is not always successful waves. As a consequence, the price of high-quality mushrooms, which share starts to grow in a stable demand for mushroom production began to decline. Thus, the value of the first grade of the fungus on the wholesale market “Shuvar” now set at around 17.0 UAH / kg, which is an average of -0,5-1,0 hryvnia below yesterday’s index. In this case, the manufacturer of such mushroom wholesalers are now buying by 15.0 UAH / kg. At the same time, supermarket suppliers continue to supply its products to the stores at former prices – an average of 19,0-19,5 UAH / kg.
In the south of Ukraine – unchanged. Mushroom producers without too much difficulty selling their products, just waiting for the approach of increased yields and sailing additional consumers by the middle of next month. champignon cost in the region – stable. Wholesale buyers and Odessa area receive products at 17,0-19,0 UAH / kg, supermarkets pay for champignon 21.0 UAH / kg. In other areas of the region and the ARC mushrooms come at a price formed on the basis of indicators of the fungus value in the Kiev region, and a little different from the cost of the fungus in Odessa. So, the average price for champignon wholesale buyer here comes to a maximum level of 16.0 UAH / kg.
The relative stability of prices and demand for the fungus is observed in the East of Ukraine. Sales at the end of the week take place uniformly, any problems with the sale of most of the products of mushroom producers have not observed, however, most of them still have some residue products in the refrigerator. In terms of quality, the main volume of products fall into the category of “good mushroom”, but lower attractiveness is not without fungus. In accordance with the above-mentioned indicators, and of course, depending on the territorial aspects and the framework established prices for champignon. In Kiev and Dnepropetrovsk fungus for wholesaler costs 15,5-16,0 grn / kg, Lugansk and Kharkov – 17,0-17,5 grn / kg, Donetske – 18.5 grn / kg. Wholesale Gorlovka market trades champignons on 18,0-19,0 UAH / kg. mushroom price supermarket is within 17.5 UAH / kg up to 20.0 UAH / kg.
