In September, grapes in Ukraine will rise in price approximately on 15 hryvnia in connection with the importation of goods from other countries.
The correspondent of ГолосUA said General Director of Ukrainian Association of trade networks suppliers Oleksiy Doroshenko.
“The prices of most fruits in Ukraine this year, lower than in the past. This is due to the fact that this season we are seeing more favorable weather conditions for crop growth: high temperatures, is followed by the rains. Great harvest is always lower prices for seasonal fruit and vegetables. Certain variations can touch the grapes: for example, if in the Odessa region throughout the week will be rain and the harvest will not be collected – the price could jump by about 20%. But the rise in prices of this fruit is not planned until the end of August,” – says the expert.
According to A. Doroshenko, in September on the shelves of Ukrainian supermarkets will be imported grapes.
“Since September, Ukraine will have to import more grapes, and on the shelves will appear more grapes from other countries: for example, from Turkey or Moldova. This will affect the pricing. If now the grapes can be bought for 25 UAH/kg, but in September it will cost 35-40 UAH/kg”, – said the expert.
We will remind, earlier it was reported that the head of the Ministry of health of Ukraine Ulyana Suprun warns that fruit must not be abused – grapes with overeating causes bloating and cherry is bad for tooth enamel.
