Dried fruit, nuts and seeds
September 2018

 Market Overview

  • – The August shipment report was released on 6th September and showed another month from which domestic sales were down by 14.7% and while export sales were up a hefty 24% over last August, YTD shipments were still 10.7% down.

  • – California is still reporting a larger new crop than last year (50,000mts+) and while this should be bringing some pressure on prices, their problem is that they still cannot agree a workable sales strategy between their growers and processors.

  • Pinenuts

    – Strong and growing demand for pinenuts continues, with global buyers seemingly comfortable to pay present prices and, where possible now, to lock in some of their needs into 2019.
