China: Sales of all kinds of chili peppers are not positive

Recently, the pandemic has spread in many places in China, and domestic cultural tourism, transportation, and dine-in meals have all been hit. For the chili industry, what is most concerning is the impact of the epidemic on the chili market. Can the transactions proceed normally?

Small pepper production areas are concentrated in Shandong, Henan and other places, and large pepper production areas are concentrated in Inner Mongolia, Jilin, Shanxi, Liaoning and other places. Closures of villages and roads in production areas are common, and crowd gatherings are strictly controlled, so vendors can neither go to the countryside to organize sources of goods nor go to the market to supply goods.

The recent new round of the pandemic has brought greater challenges for the prevention and control of the pandemic in China, resulting in a huge impact on the catering industry in various cities. Under the severe situation of a marked decline in aggregated consumption, the consumption level of chili peppers is also facing another decline.

Traffic restrictions during the pandemic has been escalated, and cities are very sensitive to outsiders. The transportation and delivery of peppers may pass through many cities, including medium and high-risk areas, which may easily cause trouble with the Covid-check code, which will affect the delivery again. Therefore, in this case, some logistics personnel were forced to go out of business, which made it more difficult to organize and source transportation vehicles.

To sum up, the impact of the pandemic on the pepper industry is multi-faceted, so the current situation for various types of peppers is not positive. Due to the current uncertainties, and given the domestic pandemic situation has not improved significantly, it is expected that the consumption of peppers will hardly be improved. On the contrary, with the gradual improvement of the domestic situation, all walks of life will gradually return to normal, and there will be more centralized supplementary purchases in downstream markets, which will boost the speed of pepper transactions in production areas.
