According to EastFruit analysts, global trade in hazelnuts is falling by 8%, or an average of $144 million per year. In addition, there is a decrease in the average world price for the hazelnut kernel by 25% – from $8.708/ton, FOB, on average in 2013-2015 to $6.574/ton an average in 2017-2019, FOB. At the same time, revenues from the exports of hazelnuts decreased by 12% in 2017-2019 compared to 2013-2015. What is the reason for this situation in the world market and what does this mean for producers in our region? Analysts of the EastFruit Georgian office tried to figure it out. Indeed, for Georgia, hazelnuts remain the main source of export revenues in the agricultural sector, after Georgian wine.
Hazelnuts may develop an “off” flavor from oxidation. High temperatures, humidity and direct light could speed the oxidation process up. To prevent oxidation, Hazelnuts should be stored in a cool, dark, and dry place. Once the package is opened, Hazelnuts should be eaten within a week or two and stored in a refrigerator or a freezer. To restore Hazelnuts’ flavor and crisp, they could be toasted gently at 275 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 15 minutes. This product is processed in a facility that also processes wheat.
