GARLIC OIL CHINESE


June 2016

A report indicates that demand for fresh, flaked, and powdered Garlic remains strong.  One supplier claims that the magnitude of this demand is such that no Oil will be produced for the remainder of 2016.  Pricing continues to rise on a weekly basis with one supplier predicting that prices will not ease until 2017.

A reliable supplier reported that demand was strong in April and early May. Since new Oil was not available, this demand was met with stocks held in the MCX warehouse.  This same supplier estimates that the total Mentha arvensis crop is 45,000 metric tons, a 50% increase from numbers given in April.   Even with the estimated large crop, the supplier believes that prices will firm due to low carryover and strong demand.  Prices are expected to ease in June and July when large amounts of Oil usually reach the market.
