Brief Description

This new research discusses the main aspects of development of the Ukrainian market of cultivated mushrooms (champignon, pleurotus and some others) during the last several years starting with production of the support medium, micellium and mushrooms, and ending with sales of fresh mushrooms or processing thereof, and production of end food products. Due to their ability to substitute part of animal protein, mushrooms became an indispensable part of Ukrainian cuisine, and demand for them remains high.

The paper pays enough attention to the technological aspects and indicators characterizing industrial production of mushrooms in Ukraine, its expenses and economics, schemes and channels of mushrooms sale, price setting and demand from the end consumers and processing enterprises. Competition among mushroom producers is growing; however, the volumes of their industrial processing and production of end mushrooms products are growing as well even despite increased imports of canned mushrooms especially from China. The research contains figures characterizing production of the end mushroom products and description of the leading producers.

Mushrooms are perishable commodity. However, both producers and sellers of fresh mushrooms were able to organize an appropriate logistic system and actively influence the price setting process. In order to understand the price setting trends, the research authors also evaluated the market capacity and shares of the leading consumers in this market; specific regional characteristics of consumption and its seasonality were also analyzed.

The research conclusion contains sections on standardization of mushroom products, legislation regulating functioning of producers and operators in the foreign trade segment, and prospects for development of the market and consumption of mushrooms in Ukraine.
