Markettelegram 01.07.2014


Due to the current developments in the markets, we are forced to update our price list s bit earlier as usual. Please note that this price list is effective from 01.07.2014 at  0 o´clock.


Garlic – China

The new crop in China is about to come into the factories. Now, the decision will be taken how much of it will get dried and therefore be available for production in September. First rumors indicate that enough goods should be available.  A higher customs duty and the dollar exchange rate caused a slight price increase.


Nutmeg – with guarantee

Due to the new and safe production process under European supervision all our imported products will be stored in our warehouse with Aflatoxins values under detection limit. Therefore we do not fright of non salable products. No replacement, no risk, no product recall – everything is safe and therefore  we could reduce the risk surcharge. Much to your advantage: so do not hesitate to ask us for samples and analyses.


Pepper white and black

The last containers from Brazil will arrive soon but it will take approx. 3 months until the next Brazilian crop. We are well provided by Brazil and are capable of supplying. Vietnam already loaded more than 90,000 tons. Only a maximum quantity of 40,000 – 50,000 tons is left to cover needs by the next crop in February/March 2015.


Onions – India

The prices increased significantly during the last four weeks, about 30 %. Due to bad weather, only 40 % of the normal quantity could be harvested. Large quantities had not even   been loaded (Defaults). Onions from USA or Egypt could be offered alternatively, but with higher prices. China could also be an option but the quality is mostly worse.
