Cumin: India loses market shares to Iran

TEHRAN. Competitive prices have prompted a sharp rise in green cumin exports in Iran. As average export prices are 30% down suppliers can easily compete with their colleagues in India. Much will, however, depend on political developments in the next few months as the lifting of US sanctions and the return of the US to the nuclear deal are crucial to exports.

Cumin: yields differ in Iran
TEHRAN. Cumin requires little water and is highly attractive for farmers in Iran. Not only do the plants increase water productivity but farmgate prices are relatively firm and enable farmers to sell at reasonable prices. Things are, however, different in the export market. Harvesting started in May with varying yields throughout the different provinces.

Saffron: traders feel let down by OPEC-style ambitions
TEHRAN. Iran has been promoting an OPEC-style Organization of Saffron Exporting Countries (OSEC) for some time now. Issue is that although Iran produces more than 92% of global market supplies, farmers and exporters lose out on profits. Traders are, however, dismissive of the high-flying notion that such an organization will enable Iran to launch a cartel and set market prices. Concern is that political ambitions may have the opposite effect.

Saffron: spice is not expensive enough
TEHRAN. Although Iran’s saffron production has risen continuously in recent years and international demand is booming, the market should witness a turn this year. Problem is a mismatch in pricing. While prices have declined in the international market over the last two years, prices in the domestic market have remained firm and production costs have risen drastically. This results in the bizarre situation that while saffron is an absolute trend product in the international market, the farmers are lacking incentive to cultivate the spice.
