Dried fruit, nuts and seeds
April 2018 Market Report

 Market Overview

From California, the monthly shipment report for February continues to show a decline in the shipments of 12 months ago (down 5.2% on Feb ’17) and cumulatively down 14% season to date.

  • HazelsWe have seen an interesting development in Turkey since our last report, which is that the TMO started to offload some of its current crop purchased stock.

There was a frenzy of buying activity at the start of this new crop season and for those that did buy early, it was a very good call.

The rest of this season looks beset by potential availability issues at best and tricky pricing at worst.
