According to information provided by "Agrooglyad: Vegetables and Fruits" weekly journal, Ukrainian canneries are actively increasing the number of imported cucumber preserves from India. The "Cornichon" are preserved in large barrels are imported mostly as raw materials for cannery production, the Agrarian Marketing Project informs.

The growth of Indian preserves supplied to Ukraine came about as a result of poor cucumber harvest in 2005. In addition, the import taxes on canned produce and preserves were drastically decreased. Decreased taxes on preserves in Ukraine started on December 1, 2005. According to the opinion of experts from the Agricultural Marketing Project, the growth of cucumber preserves that is currently being supplied to Ukraine should slow down some after the 2006 cucumber harvest is gathered. It is expected that Ukrainian farmers are once again planning to increase the amount of cucumber acreage.

India posses a number of competitive advantages which allow it to supply quality "Cornichon" at a very fair and attractive price. Thanks to the climate in India farmers there are able to harvest cucumbers from the same piece of land several times per year. In addition, labor costs are very low. In Ukraine not more than two harvests can be achieved in even the warmest parts of the country and labor costs are increasing every year. But, at the same time, if modern technologies are used for cucumber production and canning, Ukrainian producers can successfully compete with India.
