DALIAN – The sunflower kernel market in China is currently slow with missing demand from the domestic and export market. This leads manufacturers to be cautious in purchasing. The supply of sunflower kernels is also slow, and the downstream market is in the slack season of demand. Traders sell according to the market, mainly to Chinese retail companies. The trading atmosphere of the imported sunflower kernel market in the Yili area of Xinjiang is on average. The demand of the downstream market is not flourishing, so only a few customers inquire about goods. Sunflower kernel shipment reference quotations are around 8800 RMB/ton. The actual transaction depends on the goods negotiation price. The export price of the Chinese sunflower kernel is still stable at 1580 USD per ton.
