- Almonds – The drought has been alleviated only very slightly by recent rains – but origin argues this is making little impact on the underlying problem.
- Cranberries – Although the crop figures are not in yet for USA and Canada, the total would appear to be around 11.4m barrels (each barrel being 100lbs) which would be a reduction of approx 5% on last year
- Coconut – Coconut prices have never properly recovered from the Philippine typhoon last year and remain historically high. With a switch in demand for edible oils and a weak crude oil price, we could arguably see Coconut pricing ease as we enter into 2015.
