Tianjin: The price of organic lentils in my country is currently stable. The domestic market is affected by imported lentils, and prices are unlikely to rise. Imported lentils meet the needs of the domestic market, and domestic organic lentils are more challenging to sell. Manufacturers purchase raw materials on-demand and control inventory. There is no domestic phenomenon of hoarding and squeezing domestic lentils. Traders mainly process high-quality organic lentils into small packages and enter them in major supermarkets and speciality stores or deep-processed cans.

In terms of export, a small amount of high-quality organic lentils are used for export, and the export price is US$1630-1670 per ton. They are mainly sold in European markets like Italy and the Czech Republic. Foreign importers report that import costs are too high, and they are cautious in purchasing. Sea freight rates remain high, booking space is complex, and the export situation is difficult to change in the short term. Export companies are in trouble, and importers continue to pay attention to changes in the Chinese market.
