June 2020 saw a good harvest and yield for Chinese garlic, offering an output of 8 – 8.5 million MT. Levels similar to those last seen in 2018.
Because of the excess volume of garlic, prices at the start of the season were low which triggered earlier international buying activity.
The high quality of the crop resulted in a limited supply of smaller bulbs, which dehydrators typically would use. Dehydrators have had to resort to using the readily available larger bulbs to fulfil demand, pushing up the flake prices.
In mid-June, the market started to firm and prices climbed rapidly in reaction to the early surge in purchasing. Compared with the lowest level on the 1st of June, pricing for garlic is currently 30% higher.
