India Update : VANNAMEI OUTLOOK : June 3, 2015
The Vannamei prices are still at the same level as last week. In fact, there have not been any significant changes in the raw material price over the past 3 weeks.
The raw material landing is improved a bit now in Andhra Pradesh, Odisha and in Kolkata but the major sizes are 50 to 60 counts. The other sizes i.e. 30, 70, 80, 90 and 100 counts are quite less. It’s been speculated that the harvest for 30 and 40 counts is to be improved by June end.
At the moment Vietnam and China are still the major buying countries for the Indian Vannamei and almost all the exporters have ample orders for smaller sizes 31/40 down of HLSO for Vietnam and China.
The packers are looking forward to the comeback of US buyers this month.
