Dalian: Market participants reported that there is still business hype and stock hoarding. It is difficult for manufacturers to purchase, so they have to increase the purchase price. Recently, pumpkin seed kernels have entered a price increase stage again. High prices have led to decreased export demand and domestic trade demand, and exports have been slow.

Due to reduced demand, single A pumpkin seed kernels have insufficient inventory and prices have risen. Manufacturers try to reduce production costs, purchase raw materials through different channels, export quotations are differentiated, prices are unstable, and manufacturers are in trouble, but it is difficult to get rid of the difficulties in the short term.

Because pumpkin seeds are mainly exported to Europe, the United States and the Middle East markets, the current sea freight charges in these markets are too high for importers to accept. Exporters are waiting for their exports to improve, hoping that the domestic trade market will also improve as soon as possible.
