Shortage of Brazil nuts

This article was originally published in Foodnews

A LACK of Brazil nuts has caused prices to go up rapidly in the past couple of weeks. A European market reports states: "There is no reason to think that prices will go down as the product picked in the jungle is limited resulting in lesser product available. Demand, on the other hand, seems to be untouched and therefore it will become an interesting year for this item. Our recommendation remains that taking cover for the rest of the season is vital in order to fulfil demand."
