Join Mintec’s Marcel Goldenberg and Jara Zicha as well as Michel Manceau, Head of Demeter - a consultancy specialised in tropical crops and owner of the website, for a deep dive into the vanilla market and issues that come with sustainability and climate change impacting buyers and farmers at a crucial time of the vanilla crop.

It appears that this year's crop could be severely impacted by climate change, so Michel, Marcel, and Jara will discuss what impacts this will have on the vanilla prices and demand. Senior Market Analyst Jara will be speaking about the demand for vanilla.

Indeed Michel is planning to join this webinar live from Madagascar to report the latest updates from the ground.

Climate change in Madagascar has been severely impacting the vanilla industry. Many buyers, and farmers alike, have been unsure of how to approach the vanilla market due to these climate changes. This webinar will discuss the severity of climate change, how to tackle the changes, and what to do to ensure the vanilla market survives moving forward.

The demand for vanilla has rebounded, after previously falling due to high market prices that were boosted by the pandemic. Jara will look at where the boost has come from and whether importers look at alternative origins amid the regulated market in Madagascar.
