Coriander seeds price hit five-year high amid strong demand from Bangladesh

The price of coriander seeds has risen sharply in five years due to the sudden increase in demand from Bangladesh at the Mandalay market this year crop season.
“The price of coriander seeds has risen sharply in recent days due to a sudden increase in demand from neighbouring Bangladesh. In short, of all the crops produced in 2021, it is arguably the one whose price becomes high so fast,” said U Soe Win Myint (Soe Win Myint shop) from Mandalay.
The price of coriander seeds has reportedly reached a record high within five years, from 2016 to 2021. The price becomes K15,000 from K10,000 for a bushel, and the demand is still high in the market.
Coriander seeds are used as spices and transported from Sagaing, Shwebo, Wetlet, Myinmu, Thetaw, Myingyan, Mahlaing and Taungtha townships to the Mandalay market. In contrast, the coriander leaves in Yangon Region and Ayeyawady Region are sold as leaves to be used in Mohinga and other dishes instead of waiting for the seeds to sprout.
“At this time, coriander growers should wait until the seeds come out rather than selling them as leaves,” he added.
In addition to the coriander seeds, the prices of the fennel seeds and aniseeds used both as spices and traditional medicines are also higher in the market. – Min Htet Aung (Mdy Sub-printing House)/GNLM
