|Monthly and YTD Inventory / Shipment Report
Crop Month 2014
|Marketing comments for month 2 crop year 2014:
1- High export shipments continued in 2nd marketing month with about 59 percent of shipments going to the Far East. Still, this is a drop in Far East shipments during the previous month, which amounted to 75 percent of total export shipments.
2- Practically all other markets experienced a higher percentage of total export shipments in month 2, making up for lesser shipments to the Far East.
3- 28/30 round pistachios where selling to the Far East at about 2$/kilogram cheaper than US Extra#1, 22/24.
4- Should the present trend in export shipments continue, Iran would be exporting up to three fourths of the 2014 crop in the first half of this marketing year? The average figure for the first six month stands at two thirds.
5- Shipments to EU15 show healthy growth, hopefully reversing a long time downward trend.
