Transformation through Collaboration

There are many challenges faced by the pepper industry, but a more relevant one in today's time isnthe environment in which all the players in the industry has been operating. In the recent years this has fluctuated drastically making it difficult for farmers, traders and end consumers. The prices have skyrocketed from $2600/mt to $9,900/mt over a five year period since 2009. No industry can thrive under such speculative runs.

  

Lack of information on quality and regulatory requirements in the consuming countries and not having a broader perspective on supply/demand by many in the industry are reasons for these fluctuations. As a community we can bring in a more stable environment by sharing information amongst us, enabling all to make informed decisions. This applies equally to product quality, food safety, regulatory conformances, supply & demand.
