Banana prices up in Ukraine

Banana prices continue to grow in Ukraine, reports Fruit-Inform.

Fruit-Inform's daily monitoring shows 10% growth in banana prices since the beginning of December. Therefore, traders sell bananas at UAH 27-30/kg (EUR 0.81-0.91/kg). For comparison, in the beginning of the month, banana prices did not exceed UAH 27/kg (EUR 0.81/kg).

Ukrainian market players link such a trend with a rise in purchase prices of bananas; however, they admit that the price growth has negatively affected their sales rates. Nevertheless, it is worth mentioning that current banana prices are 42-43% higher than in the same period of 2016.
