Off to Costa Rica In Support of Vanilla Farmers

 

1-LaFaza HITA Zibu cart w libraryIn 2013 I was contacted by the National University of Costa Rica to speak at a round-table conference on vanilla in 2016. I was both honored and excited by the prospects of returning to Costa Rica after 52 years (which sounds impossible, but it’s true).

2013 Market Report on Vanilla

madagasgar-vanilla-beans

This report comes from Aust and Hachmann, Canada and is based on the North American Vanilla Bean  Importer’s
Association (NAVBIA)
report. I am adding to this report the latest information on Mexican beans.

Mexico had a disastrous year in 2011 due to extreme heat and drought, and  had 10% of their normal crop. 2012 was far less hot and there was ample rainfall. Unfortunately, the plants were so stressed from the previous year that the crop was again 10% of normal. There will be very few beans coming from Mexico this year. Hopefully there will be enough to produce extracts, but at this time we simply don’t know what to expect. [PR]
