    Soft Commodities

    In the UK, cocoa butter prices increased (+4%), reflecting firm demand from the chocolate industry. In response to high butter prices and weak demand, cocoa powder continued to fall (-5%).

    Oils and Fats

    Soybean oil prices fell in Rotterdam (-1%) while palm oil prices fell in Malaysia (-6%) and Indonesia (-5%). Rapeseed oil prices increased in Rotterdam (+3%).

    Rapeseed, palm and soybean oils fell, driven by an increase in the production forecast for 2014/15. Sunflower oil prices fell in Rotterdam (-2%). Prices for palm kernel oil and coconut oil fell in Rotterdam (-4%) as production is forecast to rise 6% YOY to 7.2m tonnes.


    Global wheat prices have fallen due to improved weather conditions in the main wheat growing regions of the US and favourable weather in the EU. Milling wheat futures fell on CBOT US (-10%), and LIFFE Paris (-3%), weighed down by high supply and good planting conditions in the US, the major producer.


    Turkish dried apricot prices were up significantly in the UK (+100%), doubling in price following sudden extreme frosts in March. Sultana prices were also up (+4%) in the EU, while raisins were unchanged (0%) on average.

    Spanish almonds fell (-7%). As the new almond crop progresses well, production is forecast to increase from the low levels of the last few seasons. Hazelnut prices were also up sharply (+12%) in Turkey as, like apricots, there is concern over how the crop will be affected by the frosts; the sharp increase caused trade to almost halt completely.


    Potato prices decreased overall in Europe (-15%) as plantings for the new 2014/15 season are now underway and are currently ahead of schedule. Onion prices have increased overall in Europe (+13%) as the already low supply in store diminishes.

    Milk and Dairy

    EU milk deliveries continued to increase seasonally, causing the price of some dairy commodities to fall. Butter prices in the EU fell, with prices in the UK (-3%) down during May before firming as we enter June. SMP prices were up in the UK (+4%) as the Spring flush comes to an end. Processed egg prices were up in the EU, with whole liquid egg (+6%) and liquid yolk (+1%) both up. Liquid white prices remained stable (0%).


    Prices for brent crude oil on ICE London rose (+2%), driven by good demand from the US. In Europe, both diesel and petrol remained unchanged.
