TIANJIN: According to the feedback from exporters and manufacturers, recently, due to the influence of the war between Ukraine and Russia, there have been more inquiries from buyers. However, the recent domestic epidemic has caused transportation difficulties, and the cost of inland cargo transportation has increased. It is expected that the sunflower seed export market will have a small peak in April, and exporters will drive exports with small profits but quick turnover.

The supply of goods in the producing area is sufficient, and exporters increase production. The best time to export is before summer. As the domestic trade market gradually entered the off-season, the market price dropped slightly compared with before the Spring Festival. The Middle East market accounts for about 70% of exports. This week, 361 standard sunflower seeds were exported, and the number of seeds was 180-190/50g. The export price is US$1.260-1.300/ton, and the price of count 190-200PCS/50G is US$1.250-1.280/ton. Continue to monitor market changes.
