China Update


Feb 19th, 2020

Berje’s sincere thoughts are with all those who continue to be impacted by the Coronavirus in China.

Many production sites have now resolved at least partial production, however, internal logistics and transportation still remain very challenged.  International flights and vessel space continue to be sparse and transportation delays and disruptions are unfortunately expected to continue for some period of time.

We are carefully monitoring our stocks and any potential risks, and as always, we are here to mitigate your supply chain disruptions using the depth of our domestic inventory and multiple sourcing strategies.

For any product specific inquiries, please contact your salesperson or customer care representative.

Brazil Citrus crop season update


Feb 6th, 2020

Brazil’s citrus prices are currently firm and will continue this trend once the forecast for the coming season 2020-2021 is released May 2020 by Fundecitrus. Forecast for 2020-2021 season expected at 230-260 million boxes.

The fruit yield is also expected to be lower as it will be a multi-blossom season.

The price of the fruit is also likely to be high, due to the fruit shortage. The farmers are indicating prices in the range of R$ 22 – R$ 28 per box and the industry is trying to bring it to R$ 18-22 per box. At the same time, the industry which has remained flat, is unable to support the rising costs.

Many of the larger citrus processing companies in Brazil are already planning to only run a limited number of their plants as they will not have enough fruit to run factories at full capacity.

· Easy Peel oil – 18-22 Ton – first batch from new season will be available mid/end Feb from origin

· Sweetie oil – 10-13 Ton

Patchouli oil


Jan 29th, 2020

In the last quarter, prices are continuously increasing, and availability is limited. New-season will start in May 2020 but too early to predict market levels. One of the biggest challenges this year is that Sulawesi plantations are in their fourth year and some plantations are having lower yields and poor quality due to soil exhaustion. Some manufacturers are moving patchouli production back to Java where production cost is higher than in Sulawesi.
