NEWS : Cardamom Guatemala – new harvest and forecast

Updated : 27/07/2017

Lower volume and price increasing

This harvest which ended in April, was marked by the high volatility on price and an overall high increase.

According to our partner Nelixia, producer in Guatemala, the main reasons were :
- a lower volume forecast in India;
- the drought in Guatemala, delaying the harvest and fueling speculation;
- a lower volume forecast in Guatemala, which is now confirmed by a decrease of around 20 % during this harvest.

During the last 2 months of harvest, only very bad qualities could be found, and the seeds price ended up very high.

Even if it is too early to have a good view of the next harvest starting in October, the seeds price should start as usual similar to the final one of previous harvest, so it should start high, and it will probably increase further.
