Good Pepper Demand Reported from US Market

US pepper imports in the first months of this year continued their upward trend, despite the country's inflation being at a 40-year high and retail sales recording a decline as consumers cut back on spending. According to US International Trade Commission(USITC), in the first 4 months of the year, the US imported a total of 28,671 tons of pepper, up 5.5% in volume. This shows that consumer demand for this spice in the US has not waned under the impact of high inflation.
 
Notably, 74% of pepper imported to the US market in the first 4 months of this year was provided by Vietnamese suppliers, reaching 21,170 tons, a sharp increase of 25.3% over the same period last year. Meanwhile, US pepper imports from some other suppliers dropped sharply such as Brazil down 32.9%, Indonesia down 45.7%.
