Vietnam exported just under 40,000MT of pistachios in September 2022. This is the lowest export month in two years. Export volumes YTD to the US are down close to 25% and exports to Europe are down 20%. Even the exports to China are down 18% for the year. On the other hand, there has been a slight increase in exports to the Middle East. 2021 was a year that broke all export records, but 2022 seems to be a year of correction and re-balancing of the overstocked pistachio supply chain. Vietnam is clearly reducing production, which can be seen in the current stabilisation of pistachio kernel prices.
