Blueberry prices to remain maximum in Russia and go down significantly in Belarus

Russia is and will remain a net importer of blueberries, as Russian blueberry production growth rates are currently too low. Meanwhile, blueberry consumption is also growing at the rates higher than production growth. Thus, blueberry prices in the Russian market fully depend on the supply of main exporters almost within the whole year.

  

 Ukraine has the longest period of minimum prices of blueberries, as, in addition to a gradual increase in areas, Ukrainian growers have started to produce these berries in greenhouses. Thus, the domestic season in Ukraine is at least a month longer than in neighboring Russia and Belarus.

Belarusian blueberry production is growing, but provision of technologies is rather low, and, the higher would be the supply of unsorted and unbranded produce with no packaging and certification, the more rapid would be a fall in prices.
