Prices for US import: August 2014 Update
Between June and July 2014 prices for honey import in the USA did not change too much staying relatively high. However, data on import from Ukraine are absent in the USDA report of July. Prices for honey from Argentina look a little lower ($1.83 – $1.88 per pound; i.e. $4.03 – $4.14 per Kg) while India and Vietnam were able to keep about the same low prices as before (see picture below).
However, in August, the prices underwent significant growth of some 6% for Vietnam, 11% for Argentina and 17% for honey from India. Honey from Ukraine also came at some 10% higher price than back in May.
