With supply of RCN from West Africa coming to an end, Tanzania’s new crop flow started well as expected and government resorted to the earlier system of auctioning. The trading price is at $1,700 - $1,750 USD/MT, around $100 USD/MT higher than expectation and is keeping the markets firm. Mozambique’s new crop also is as expected and trading between $1,350 - $1,400 USD/MT levels. With WAF season starting in one month and a huge quantity of RCN expected to come, prices of RCN may soften a bit. Kernel prices are expected to firm up a bit as well, as buyers cover their demands for Q2 next year.
