Among the stories:

Gerhard H.Breuer talks to Amirali Asgarowladi, Managing Director, Green Diamond Tree, Tehran

The 2017/18 pistachio crop was very large, but producers and traders were not happy. How come?

The average size was smaller.It’s not so easy to understand, and that’s why I’d like to explain the facts to you.For us, 31 is the usual export size for the Fandoghi variety, i.e.31 pistachios per ounce (28,35g).This is not particularly large, but it is the standard size for Iranian pistachios.Our large sizes start at 28/30 and 30/32, and in 2016 size 31 was as large as 32/34 this year.

What I‘m saying is that this year’s pistachios have less density.The fruit looks the same from the outside as in 2016/17 and it has the same size, but in 2017/18 it has a lower weight.In international trade, the benchmark is the number of nuts per ounce.Our customers buy 28/30 or 30/32 from us, but they actually get 34/36 or 32/34.It is not about the outer dimension.Buyers all over the world fear small calibers.This crop resulted in a large quantity of „light“ pistachios….


Interview with Mohammad Amin, AHT, Tehran

Your company is one of the largest in the field of raisins, Goldens and Sultanas. The 2017 harvest was a complete failure. How can you meet your obligations to your customers?

The reason for the crop failure in 2017 was not the climate, but the lack of water.There was simply not enough rainfall.Compared to previous years, we had only half of the raw material.Once the farmers learned that the price of Goldens was much higher, they produced Goldens from fresh grapes which were also hardly available because they had been absorbed by the domestic market.Golden‘s share of the total crop was much higher.The quality was good, but there were not enough grapes.Remember, the domestic demand for raisins is high, amounting to 40‘000 t.In September 2017, when the farmers began to produce Sultanas, the price of Golden raisins was still high so there was only little raw material left over for Sultanas.We can’t gain all important markets for now.We told our customers: If goods are available from other countries like Turkey, please buy there…


Shipping high quality to Europe

Amir Sedaghat, Managing Director, Grandor Co., Tehran

Our company was established in 2004 and active in the field of exporting Dried Fruit and Nuts such as Raisins, Dates, Pistachios, Dried Figs, Dried Apricots and Roasted chickpeas.

Our last generation was engaged in pistachio growing in Rafsanjan city and lunched our factory there.Also we have a processing plant of Raisins in Malayer city.

Pistachios are by the most important items in our business with a share of about half of turnover .As you know, the last crop was poor in respect of big sizes, however, the quantity was good.Last year we exported pistachios, mostly in shell and to a lesser extent kernels to 20 countries.Our objective is to export Dried Fruits and Nuts to all parts of the world, but for the 2017/18 crop we moved quite some to India, Russia, Europe, Australia, Middle East, North Africa and China.We double checking our supplies to shipping the best quality of our products to Europe…


It’s an adventure and a people’s business

Since 2003, Anabela Foods represents companies from Africa and Asia – with three main focuses: rice, oilseeds and dried fruits and nut kernels.Raisins and dates come from Pakistan, mangoes and cashews from Burkina Faso.Behind Anabela Food is a special source of energy – founder and owner Anabela Lourenco Alves, for whom trade is a matter of the heart.

What is your business model?

Alves: We only have exclusive representations.The contracts run for 5 years.We do not buy and we do not sell under our own name, but we act exclusively as a sales department.The customer can carry out audits himself.The supplier is in direct contact with the customer, we organize every year trips with the supplier to the customers.We organize joint stands at various trade fairs…


Irregular almond blossom in Valencia

In mid-March, the almond trees in the interior of the province of Castellón are in full bloom.They belong to the late varieties.The weather conditions are mostly favorable with a lot of sunshine and midday temperatures exceeding 20ºC.

In general, this year’s flowering in Valencia is very irregular and particularly long due to the weather conditions.At the end of January it was very hot, so that the early varieties blossomed earlier.In February came the cold and with it the dreaded frosts.Until the beginning of March temperatures remained relatively low, leaving the flowers on the trees…


Global corporation with downsides

1,988 shareholders attended Nestlé’s 151st Annual General Meeting held at the Palais Beaulieu in Lausanne on August 12, 2018.Together they represented 54.6% of the capital of CHF 61.5 billion and 78.2% of the shares entitled to vote.In 2017, the Group generated sales of CHF 89.8 billion.

The company has 2,000 brands worldwide.More than 60 are known in Europe.The company employs 328,000 people at 449 production sites in 189 countries.Net income fell from CHF 8.8 to 7.2 billion.Organic growth declined from 3.2 to 2.4%.While the markets in Asia delivered good results, a decline was recorded…


A niche for dried fruits and nuts in the world market

Supplying dried fruit and nuts to world markets is a challenging and highly competitive business.Within this context South Africa might not rate as a major supplier, yet it is safe to say it punches above its weight in many aspects of the trade.Based on quality, consistency and sound business practices South African suppliers have carved a niche for themselves in world markets.

Having a wide selection is a desirable mix of products when entering the dried fruit and nut trade.It would certainly have helped lay the foundation for Gerhard van der Westhuizen and three of his four sons when they launched their business, Empire Nuts and Dried Fruit, in 2005.The fourth son, Johan, who is also a shareholder, holds a senior post abroad with an internationally listed company…
