Spice Markets report that unfavorable weather conditions and the Indian government’s new currency policies have made transactions difficult.  We expect to see prices begin to reflect this situation soon.

BLACK PEPPER OIL


July 2016

The Spice Trade is reporting delays in the crops from Brazil and Indonesia.  Fresh Pepper from Indonesia is not expected to be exported before the end of July/early August.  Delayed by El Niño, the crop in Southeastern Brazil is already late and is expected to be ready in September or October.  Vietnamese dealers are advising that farmers and collectors are withholding product, waiting for prices to climb higher.  With the Indian crop reportedly smaller than normal and little relief from Indonesia in the near future, prices are expected to increase.

BLACK PEPPER OIL


May 2016

The spice market reports that this year’s crop in India was significantly lower than that of last year.  It also reports that drought and now heavy rains have caused peppercorns to drop prematurely, negatively affecting Indonesia’s crop.  A good crop in Vietnam has offset this, allowing prices to soften.

December 2015

A Spice Trade Journal has advised that the Indian crop due in January 2016 may suffer a 20% shortfall due to erratic rain.  A similar prediction has been made for the Indonesian market though Vietnam and Cambodia may cover this shortfall.  Expectations are that prices for Oil will increase.
