6/21/22: Prices continue to rise as a result of the Russia-Ukraine war.
4/5/22: Supply on coriander herb and seed has tightened due to the Russia-Ukraine war. Prices are rising and availability is low.
11/2/21: Price of coriander seed oil has increased over the past few weeks due to the increasing cost of raw materials. The most recent Russian crop was okay, though the volume was still not at the same level as it was in 2020. Demand has gone up and shortages have become increasingly more common.
8/6/21: The Russian coriander seed crop is about to begin in Russia (August to October) and is expected to be 20-30% smaller than the 2020 crop. Limited seed carryover and firm prices have limited oil production. There is also no oil carryover, causing demand to remain very firm as prices continue to strengthen.
8/2/21: Coriander had a fairly poor crop in 2020, causing farmers to not plant much material this year. As such, this year’s harvest has also been very lackluster. Most production of coriander is based in Russia and Egypt, though Egyptian material tends to have a much lower oil extraction rate. Luckily, coriander oils have a very long shelf life, so carryover material will remain in good shape for the foreseeable future.
Description of Coriander Seed Oil
Steam distilled from the ripened and partially-dried fruits of the Coriandrum Sativum herb, Coriander Seed Oil is extensively used across the world, from Eastern Europe to South America. Renowned for its sweet and spicy qualities, this oil is commonly found in flavorings for candy, tobacco, pickles, meats, sauces, and many other seasonings. Most famously used in Pastrami, coriander oil becomes even more potent when blended with smoky and salty flavors. Its floral, somewhat balsamic notes also work extremely well alongside other jammy, herbal ingredients commonly found within male colognes. This ability to blend with floral and herbal components has made the oil a rising star in the world of niche perfumery, enhancing its influence far beyond popular flavorings.
