According to the Agricultural Research Institute, in consumer markets in Budapest, the price per kilo of domestic garlic ha increased. In the first seven weeks of 2016 it was between 980-1130 HUF. In the observed Hungarian chains the Hungarian garlic was offered at a 13 percent higher price (1460 HUF) than a year ago, while the average price of Chinese import products rose by 25 percent to 1206 HUF in the period under review.
