Therefore, the support of WMAP development will continue to be in focus of the state policy. That was informed by the Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food, Mykola Prysyazhnyuk.

"The season of greenhouse vegetables has already finished, and young vegetables are coming on the shelves in high volume. Meanwhile Ukrainian housewives continue to preserve fruits and vegetables for the cold season. The question is - where is it most reasonable to buy? For example, if you compare the prices, on the wholesale markets of agricultural products vegetables for Borsch set cost on average a quarter less than in the supermarkets, "- said the Minister.

Thus, in Kyiv on the WMAP "Stolychnyi" potatoes, carrots, beetroots, onions and cabbage cost 22% less than in the retail chains. In Donetsk, on the market "Hospodar" Borsch set costs 23% cheaper than in the retail chains, and on Lviv market "Shuvar" - 32% cheaper. "The system of wholesale markets of agricultural products has proved to be effective. And over the time of their existence in Kiev, Donetsk and Lviv they were attended by more than 4.4 million Ukrainians "- said the Minister.

Mykola Prysyazhnyuk stressed that the state for the third year in a row supports the development of WMAP throughout Ukraine so that domestic consumers were able to purchase quality agricultural products without unreasonable extra margin of intermediaries. At the same time farmers are able to sell their products profitably. Since the cost of wholesale markets services are much lower than in commercial networks.
