Dalian: After the Spring Festival, traders and producers began to resume work. As the production and sales prices were stable at the beginning, the export market began to recover, and prices were stable. This week, the price of pumpkin seed kernels is stable, and there is a shortage of raw materials for GWS pumpkin seeds in the market. Sourcing has become more difficult, and many exporters have stopped making export offers. Prices are for reference only.

Unicaps Sunflower seeds

Major exporters currently export bright-skinned pumpkin seeds AA and A. Due to the lack of GWS raw materials, it is difficult for importers to purchase GWS pumpkin seeds, the cost increases, and the export quantity is limited.

Exporters expect pumpkin seed prices to remain stable in the short term. High prices lead to a decline in export demand and domestic trade demand. In addition, sea freight is too high, and exporters are in trouble. The export situation is difficult to change in the short term. Exporters are looking forward to lower purchasing costs and ocean freight rates, and an upturn in the market. Pay attention to post-holiday market changes.
