The latest Market Reports

  • August 2017
    VANILLA MARKET UPDATE – AUGUST 2017 Although we are still several months away from a more comprehensive global vanilla assessment, we felt it necessary to update the situation on the ground in Madagascar as it is evolving somewhat differently than we had suggested in our report of May 2017.  Madagascar will have an even more dominant position on the global vanilla stage in 2017 as compared to 2016 as virtually all speculative and carry over inventories of vanilla beans have been mostly liquidated.  The expected increase in vanilla production from other origins has not yet materialized and it is unlikely we will see a significant impact before 2018. Therefore what transpires in Madagascar this season will determine the trajectory of the global vanilla trade which we will analyze in greater detail later in the year. In the meantime the Madagascar harvest has been well under way for over almost two months and there have been several unexpected developments so far. […]

    MISE À JOUR SUR LE MARCHÉ DE LA VANILLE – MAI 2017 La crise du commerce mondial de la vanille se poursuit sans relâche à mesure que l’on enclenche la campagne de la vanille verte  2017 au Madagascar. Cette mise à jour du marché se concentre  uniquement sur le Madagascar étant donné que les autres régions productrices de la vanille auront un impact négligeable sur la production mondiale en 2017, avec l’exception de la Papouasie-Nouvelle-Guinée où l’on s’attend d’avoir une récolte de plus de 200tm de vanille. Il est prévu que L’Indonésie, l’Inde et l’Uganda produisent des récoltes relativement petites, probablement bien en-deçà de 500tm les trois combinées. Nous évaluerons ces marchés avec plus de détails plus tard durant l’année. Suite à une campagne désastreuse en 2016,  en se basant sur l’activité que nous constatons actuellement sur le terrain au Madagascar au début de la récolte 2017, nous pensons que la situation risque fort d’empirer avant de s’améliorer. Il n’y a aucun […]

    VANILLA MARKET UPDATE – MAY 2017 The turmoil in the global vanilla trade continues unabated as the 2017 green vanilla campaign gets underway in Madagascar. This market update will focus only on Madagascar as other vanilla growing regions, with the exception of Papua New Guinea where over 200mt of vanilla is expected, will have a negligible impact on the global vanilla production for 2017. Indonesia, India and Uganda are all expected to produce relatively small crops, probably well below 500mt combined. We will assess these markets in more detail later in the year. After a disastrous 2016 campaign, based on the activity we are currently seeing on the ground in Madagascar at the onset of the of the 2017 harvest, we are expecting the situation to deteriorate even further, before we see any improvement. There is no historical precedent as far as today’s vanilla prices and quality are concerned. We are now in uncharted waters and it remains to be seen how much further industrial […]

Aust & Hachmann (Canada) Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility or sustainable business practices is something that companies who deal with underdeveloped countries like Madagascar are being encouraged to embrace. Defining sustainability and applying it within any business model, depending on the product involved, is not so easily achieved. In the case of vanilla from Madagascar there are several approaches which could all be considered sustainable with each practice providing its own benefits. Although Aust & Hachmann (Canada) sponsors several programs and projects on the ground our primary focus is education.
