Meanwhile, cashew prices are starting to look attractive against pecans, almonds, hazels, pistachios and macadamias. “It may be a mistake to look at historical demand without considering this emerging rise in interest for natural and healthy eating options,” said Setterfield. The price of hazels should remain firm into 2007, he added.January was typically a quiet time in the sultana calendar, whereas there is an Easter demand for currants. “We would also expect an increase in demand for apricots from within the UK and mainland Europe as they feature more prevalently within food manufacture and snacking mixes,” added Setterfield.RM Curtis is an importer, trader and packer of nuts, dried fruit and other dried products, based in London and Essexlast_img read more
