HA NOI —
Over the past few months, cashew nuts W320 price surged from $3.2 to $3.33 per pound. This climb can be partially attributed to the decreasing stockpile of cashew nuts from 2011, which has led to more large volume purchases and contracts.
The price of cashew nuts was expected to increase again in the second quarter as cashew importers prepared for the high demand during the winter holidays like Christmas, Vinacas said.-VNS
