Thousands of years ago, the Inca’s began eating peanuts as they originally come from South America. Nowadays, the demand for organic peanuts is constantly growing worldwide as customers become more aware of the relationship between nutrition and health.
Southern America is known as an excellent place to produce peanuts. With Argentina and Brazil specifically, both known for the large volumes which are exported. Within 2020, the two countries acknowledged export numbers to grow as the demand from the international markets (especially China) remained strong, even though Covid-19 struck the world.
With the strong ongoing demand new growing areas are being explored in the regions which are known to be successful. This way we’ve found a source of beautiful organic peanuts from Bolivia.
Currently, all harvests were done quickly and effectively with a quality that’s looking promising.
However, within the Brazilian market, crop oil prices continued to increase, setting a base price to kernels. The reason is that the farmers are opting to sell in shells to oil producers rather than to sheller/exporters, which has a substantial impact on exported kernel volumes.
Uncertainty continues whether the production area will be reduced or the stay same. Looking at current conditions, an increase sounds quite unlikely. With regards to organic peanuts, we strongly recommend you investigate your needs until at least Q2 2022 as availability from this “new” origin will be limited.
