September 2017

The lengthy rainy season experienced in Indonesia has seriously impacted the crop. Along with thunderstorms and strong winds, trees did not flower normally; producing fewer cloves. We are now in the “dry” season, but have yet to see any significant easing of prices; actually they seem to be very firm.

CLOVE LEAF OIL & DERIVATIVES


August 2017

With Indonesia still not producing at a “normal” rate, prices continue to firm. These prices are expected to ease late summer as we are now in the “Dry” Season and very shortly production of oil should increase. In line with Indonesia, Madagascan oil pricing has risen. Madagascar crop should begin in August, so early Fall should see prices soften.

Reports continue to advise that steady rainfall in Indonesia is hampering the collection of leaves.  With supplies of Crude Clove Oil reportedly limited prices continue to firm.  Eugenol, Iso Eugenol, Caryophyllene, Methyl Eugenol, Methyl Iso Eugenol, Vanillin ex Eugenol, and Propenyl Guaethol have all firmed.  With the rainy season lasting through March & April we do not expect prices to ease soon.

A Spice Journal has recently reported that a major trader in Clove and Clove Oil has advised that there are issues with the Madagascar Crop.  It is expected to total 9000 tons this year rather than the normal 13000 tons.  With carryover at 2000 tons or less, prices for both Cloves and their oil will continue to rise.
