Major factories are expected to close for their traditional time period during the summer months.  We have been advised that sufficient supplies have been stockpiled to last the summer.  Pricing should be stable.

Overproduction among manufacturers to keep market share continues to contribute to softer pricing.  With Petroleum prices rising, however, this situation may not persist.

Prices continue to tumble, matching the falling price of Petroleum.  Fierce competition among sellers has also fueled low prices, as market share is seen to be more important than margin.

VANILLIN


December 2015

Prices for Vanillin remain low in line with the price of Petroleum.  On Thursday, November 12th, Hershey announced that their Chocolate Kisses and Chocolate bars for the holiday season will not contain any artificial ingredients. A formula change of this magnitude would likely require months of testing and sourcing a replacement for Vanillin.  What effect this will have on the Vanillin market will have to wait until after the holiday season.  If sales are successful, will Hershey abandon Synthetic Vanillin in all of their product lines? Will Nestle follow? What will happen to demand pricing for Vanilla extracts ex Vanilla Beans; Vanilla ex Turmeric, and Vanillin ex Ferulic Acid?
