With rain diminishing crop size prices continue to firm.

May 2018




Rains during the traditional harvest period in Haiti have deterred some farmers from harvesting in addition to diminishing the yields from roots that are harvested.  In Indonesia available quantities this year are higher than those of last year.

March 2018




Processing of roots into oil continues, however expenses at both the farm level and processing plants have increased. Pricing has firmed and will continue to firm in the foreseeable future.

January 2018




Prices are up and not much quantity is available until the new crop is ready at the end of January / early February.

November 2017




Very little of the Indonesian quality is available at origin.  In Haiti, no new distillation will begin before the new main harvest starting in January / February.

July 2017




Production is limited due to the continued suffering from the effects of the heavy rains that occurred and considerably delayed distillation. Strong demand has forced prices to climb higher.  With the major harvest in January/February, relief is not expected soon.

June 2017




Heavy rains in Haiti have made harvesting of the roots very difficult.  Prices for oil continue to go up.

March 2017




There does not seem to be any offers of oil from Indonesia and oil production has just started in Haiti.  Haitian oil pricing is firm as demand seems to be greater than supply.

February 2017




New production has just begun in Haiti though availability is limited and prices continue to firm.  Indonesian Vetiver is extremely limited and pricing today is higher than that from Haiti.

January 2017




We have reports indicating that production will start in January.  Despite this, prices are not expected to soften as strong demand and increased fuel prices will likely continue to drive up prices.

Here as well, Hurricane Matthew has caused turmoil in the supply of this ingredient.

October 2016




Similarly to Amyris, prices continue to rise as availability is not able to cover demand.

September 2016




Similarly to Amyris Oil, there is not enough Haitian Vetiver to cover demand.  Additionally, production in Indonesia appears to be non-existent.

August 2016




Situation unchanged.  Prices for Haitian Oil continue to rise as demand exceeds supply.  Oil from Indonesia is not readily available at any price.

July 2016




Oil from Indonesia is extremely difficult as there appears to be very limited processing being done.  In Haiti the crop is mostly over and supply is not meeting demand.  Prices for both Vetiver Oils continue to climb.
