SOFIA/NUR-SULTAN. Although trading is rather subdued in Bulgaria's bakery kernel market, a further rise in prices is very well possible. Kazakhstan's Ministry of Agriculture has, meanwhile, confirmed that there is no intention of implementing any export tariffs.

Prices remain high

Demand for inshells persists. Issue is that large oil mills require enormous supplies. Trading for bakery kernels is, by contrast, very much subdued in Bulgaria. Hullers are reluctant to offer contracts beyond March. Concern is that supplies may run low before the new crop arrives.

Nevertheless, it should be noted that prices range around EUR 0.32/kg higher
