The new crop is starting over the next few weeks, though COVID-19 constraints will make collection more difficult than normal. Balsam Copaiba is harvested from the Amazon Rainforest, which also has the potential to create additional complications. Due to the increased cost of ocean freight, the steel drum shortage, and other global issues, we expect prices to remain firm or even increase when compared to the previous year.
