MADAGASCAR: We have seen prices soften, as it appears demand has eased.

INDONESIAN & DERIVATIVES:  Here too, prices have softened slightly. Dry season is here, and harvesting of leaves has now become easier. With that, Eugenol prices have begun to soften also.

With Indonesia still not producing at a “normal” rate, prices continue to firm. These prices are expected to ease late summer as we are now in the “Dry” Season and very shortly production of oil should increase. In line with Indonesia, Madagascan oil pricing has risen. Madagascar crop should begin in August, so early Fall should see prices soften.

With harvesting of Clove delayed by the abnormally long rainy season and the one month respite due to Ramadan, little Clove Leaf Oil has been produced. Prices have firmed, including for Eugenol and Iso Eugenol. It is expected that prices will ease later on this summer into autumn.

The harvest has been postponed for one month as Indonesia continues to receive heavy rains.  This combined with last weekend’s start of Ramadan has contributed to a firming of prices.

With a deadly cyclone in Madagascar and incessant rains in Indonesia, prices for the following ingredients are rising: Clove Leaf Oil, Clove Stem Oil, Eugenol, Methyl Eugenol, Methyl Iso Eugenol, Iso Eugenol, Eugenyl Acetate, Iso Eugenyl Acetate, and Vanillin ex Eugenol.  From Madagascar, expect the Ylang Oils and Vanilla to escalate as well.

Reports continue to advise that steady rainfall in Indonesia is hampering the collection of leaves.  With supplies of Crude Clove Oil reportedly limited prices continue to firm.  Eugenol, Iso Eugenol, Caryophyllene, Methyl Eugenol, Methyl Iso Eugenol, Vanillin ex Eugenol, and Propenyl Guaethol have all firmed.  With the rainy season lasting through March & April we do not expect prices to ease soon.
