BEIJING. The prices on offer for GWS kernels and for Shine Skins are expected to develop in different directions in China's pumpkin seed market.

Shine Skins continue to trade lower

With the arrival of the new crop the pressure is on in the export market, which has prompted Grade A shine skins to trade lower at USD 2.36-2.50/kg CFR Hamburg. Demand is, nevertheless, largely subdued. This is not only due to the current situation, but also to the fact that prices range higher than last year, although production is up. Export prices should, however, continue to decline over the next few weeks.
