Marcel Verdellen, Satori:

"Global ginger shortage is driving prices up"

Current global ginger supplies are limited. That's leading to sky-high prices on the market. "China has little ginger available. Their harvests are more than 20% lower. And they're slow to get the new crops going. The Brazilian season is ending, and Thailand has no more old ginger. That country will only come back on the market in February. If you want to buy Peruvian ginger, you're going to have to cough up," says Marcel Verdellen of Satori in the Netherlands.

"Generally, you'll make a killing if you can offer ginger now. A box of Brazilian ginger will soon go for €40 to €45. Ditto Peru. So it's not a question of sales. It's more one of being able to deliver the goods. After all, people still want to offer ginger. It's a standard supermarket item. And there aren't any alternatives. There are only a few ginger producers," concludes the importer.
