New oil from this crop year was estimated to have produced 30-40% lesser than last
year, but prices are down regardless because of low demand. Because of 2018 prices were very high,
farmers continued to pick berries and produce oil. Carryover from last year more than compensating for this year’s shortage.

Prices are expected to go up further. We are currently in the first season (October to December) for fruit and seed. Prices are very expensive. Plant root for several years now is being purchased by the pharmaceutical companies for Tamiflu and pulling from raw material. This year, Anise leaf oil availability was normal but Anise Fruit Oil was very expensive.

November 2019

New crop is beginning in Guatemala and prices look to remain firm.  Expectations are that production will be down 20-30% due to a very dry summer and early picking.  Additionally, carryover is nearly non-existent and global demand continues to be high.
