Recently, the price of garlic has dropped significantly. Within a week, the price dropped by nearly 50%, and the retail price was only about 3 yuan per jin. As the catering market has been relatively sluggish since the beginning of this year, the transaction volume of garlic heads has decreased. After the new garlic heads began to appear on the market, the price dropped significantly.
Recently, fresh garlic has been gradually put on the market, the price of old garlic has also been generally reduced, and the inventory of merchants has increased, which has become the main reason for the reduction of market prices.
According to industry insiders, from the second half of last year to March this year, the garlic on the market was mainly stock garlic, and the price was relatively stable, always at a high position of about 10 yuan per jin, but recently new garlic began to be listed in large quantities, and The delivery speed is still relatively fast, which has formed a great impact on the stock of old garlic.
A garlic broker from Shandong said that in the past two years, the main garlic producing areas have been expanding the planting area, according to the regulation, spring is the production period, and this year also ushered in a bumper harvest. Under the circumstance that the catering consumer market is not optimistic, the shipping price of garlic has also begun to decline.
However, although the price of garlic has been at a high level for a long time, the daily purchase of this flavored agricultural product is not large, and the consumption frequency is not high. The main consumer is still the mass catering market, which is more obviously affected by external factors.
