Dalian: Exporters report that prices have started to rise due to the recent increase in demand for sunflower kernels due to the war in Ukraine and Russia. Also, costs are increasing for European importers, and the purchasing power of the European market is declining because of the falling exchange rate of the euro. The Middle East market is better than the European market.
In terms of exports, prices began to rise, with confectionary-grade sunflower kernels as the mainstay, while bakery-grade sunflower kernels were not very competitive. Orders in the Middle East and Southeast Asia increased, and orders in the US market decreased significantly year on year. This week, the price of confectionary-grade sunflower kernels FOB Dalian or Tianjin is 1.640-1.670 US dollars/ton, and the price of bakery-grade sunflower kernels FOB Tianjin or Dalian is 1.620-1.650 US dollars/ton.
