Organic Lentils: Exports Decrease, Imports Increase at China

Spread the news!

Tianjin: Traders reported that sales of organic lentils in the market were slow before the Spring Festival, and prices tended to stabilize. At the same time, due to the low price of imported lentils from Canada and Turkey, there is no upward momentum in prices. Some traders are accustomed to buying imported common lentils at low prices. Since it is difficult for imported lentils to meet the domestic market demand, domestic organic lentils occupy a certain market share.

At present, domestic manufacturers mainly sell inventory. Domestic high-quality organic lentils entered the mid-to-high-end market. On the export side, organic lentils are priced at $1,620-$1,650 per ton. Foreign importers report that import costs are too high, and they are cautious in purchasing. In the early period of the Spring Festival, the sea freight rate rose slightly, the difficulty of booking space increased, and the export situation was difficult to change in the short term. Exporters are in trouble, and importers continue to pay attention to changes in the Chinese market.
