IN THE SUPERMARKET

Peanut prices rising due to depressed worldwide crops and higher Aflatoxin levels.

 

a depressed peanut inventory, along with a worldwide increased demand for peanut butter, plus increased aflatoxin levels drives peanut butter pricing higher, especially for eu products.

The worldwide peanut crop has taken a beating over the past few years, from the reduced production in China, along with an increased demand in that market, has put pressure on the inventory in the USA and Argentina.

Adverse weather in Argentina during the harvest period reduced availability of product from that market, while drought conditions in the USA hurt its inventory.

The result of the negative crop production in those three markets, along with the increased demand for peanut butter and peanut oil, is driving prices higher for all markets.

The EU is feeling the impact on peanut butter pricing because of the smaller inventory, plus because of its required limitations on the level of Aflatoxin allowed in the product.
