Dalian: According to exporters’ feedback, sales of Chinese sunflower kernels were slow this week, with demand at domestic food factories and bakers falling. At the same time, the production area is affected by the snowy weather, and the transportation difficulty increases. In order to reduce inventory pressure, some exporters cut prices to sell.
The picture is almost the same for sunflower seeds. However, the domestic demand increases with the export market trading volume declining. Price falls, but the price is higher than the same period last year.
Reference prices for confectionary-grade sunflower seeds this week range from $1,340 to $1,370 or €1,225 to €1,255 per ton of FOB in Dalian or Tianjin. The reference prices for bakery-grade sunflower seeds range from $1,350 to $1,380 or €1,235 to €1,265 per ton of FOB in Tianjin or Dalian.
This week, the reference price of export standard sunflower seeds 361 (200-210 / 50 g) is $1470- $1500/ton or €1,345-€1,375/ton and the reference price of 190-200/50 g is $1490- $1520/ton or €1,365-€1,390/ton.
