The price of potatoes continues to grow
The price of potatoes grew five times over the last year and does not seem to have reached its limit.
According to the experts of the project «APK-Inform: Fruits and Vegetables», potatoes became 13 percent more expensive over the last couple of days: wholesale price is 4-4.5 hryvnas per kilo, while select potatoes cost 4.8-5 hryvnas per kilo. Retail prices are even higher.
