MADRID/SACRAMENTO. Spanish traders have made slight upward price adjustments despite the holidays. Meanwhile, it became clear that Germany has reduced almond imports this season.

Germany reduces imports by 5%

In the first three months of the 2020/2021 almond season, Germany imported 25,512 mt of shelled almonds, 5% less than this time last year. Overall, imports from the USA were comparable to the previous year's result, but import volumes fell significantly between August and October despite low prices. Shipments from Spain, Australia and Italy were also noticeably lower, while re-exports from the Netherlands rose by a third year-on-year to 1,176 mt.
