  • Latest Market Information July 1, 2019

    There is negligible quantity of authentic oil available and the market has seen an influx of a significant volume of synthetic grade oil. Subjecting various samples to the C14 test have revealed synthetic adulterations. Most of the plantations of note have shifted their endeavours towards production of culinary dry leaf over oil production, since this brings premium returns. Overall, natural lemon myrtle is being produced in low volumes. GGN has taken a positive initiative and entered into contract harvesting and plantation management. The company has added 60 hectares of plantation, thereby adding volumes and easing availability in the market.
