India: pistachio prices up on short supplies
Barring a rise in Pistachio irani and hairati, prices generally ruled steady on the the wholesale dry fruits market today in the absence of any worthwhile activity and closed around previous levels. Arrivals and offtake also remained negligible and volume of business was small.
Traders said restricted arrivals mainly pushed up pistachio prices. Pistachio irani and Hairati prices were up by Rs 10 each to trade at Rs 510-535 and 510-540 per kilo respectively.
