Price recovery

This article was originally published in Foodnews

MACADAMIA prices in Kenya are slowly firming up as consumption in key markets improve. Currently, farmers are getting KES30-35/kg (US$0.49-0.57/kg), an increase from last year's KES20. High prices fetched in 2005 resulted in an influx of nuts from Kenya (FOODNEWS passim). However, these prices only served to turn customer away, and with excess stocks and reduced demand, dealers were forced to lower prices to stem any losses. As a result, Kenya Nut Company, a major dealer in the country, stopped buying macadamias from farmers until global prices improved (FOODNEWS 15 February). It now seems this drop in prices has rekindled consumer interest and demand is pushing prices upwards once more.
