Carrot prices downThis article was originally published in Foodnews
UKRAINIAN raw material prices for canning carrots have halved from last year's levels, according to FruitInform. At the moment, canners are paying about €0.13/kg compared with €0.28/kg last year. More plantings and better yields are responsible for an increased supply. However, processors warn that finished product prices are unlikely to fall due to other cost increases.
