Dalian: According to market participants, there is a shortage of raw materials in the pumpkin seed market. In short supply, prices are rising, and the export market is slow. Most producers of pumpkin seed A grade and GWS A quality have sold out and stopped quoting. At present, the primary producers export plain pumpkin kernels AA and GWS AA for a living.

Organic Pumpkin Seed Kernel AA is mainly exported to the US market, and there are few orders in the European market, and the export quantity is limited. Due to the decrease in the output of pumpkin seeds and the stockpiling by traders, the price has risen, and there is no downward trend in the short term. The high cost has led to a decline in export demand and domestic trade demand. In addition, ocean freight is too high, exports are slowing down, and exporters are in trouble. The export situation is difficult to change in the short term. Exporters look forward to a drop in ocean freight and wait for the market to improve.
