Chinese shine skin pumpkin seed kernels face a serious shortage of raw materials, [swpm_protected visible_to=”logged_in_users_only” custom_msg=’This content is for members only.

The exporters’ situation is also tough as they have to stop business or increase the conventional pumpkin seed kernels business, which means meager profit but high turnover and financial risks. Some enterprises focus on other products, such as soybeans, sorghum, or other agricultural products. As a result, market participants expect the price will remain stable. Currently, at $3,720 per ton, there will be no big fluctuations in the short term, especially not downwards.
