  • Latest Market Information January 1, 2018

    2017 production was significantly better than 2016 with a reported increase of 3 MT oil available after harvest. This increase from 4 MT to 7 MT has certainly given the market some needed relief after a period of instability. Qualities still vary and with this prices. For the higher 47-50% davanone material you can still expect to pay a 10% premium on other offers. Next crop March 2018.

    Market prices USD 470.00 - 530.00 /kilo
