As most of you are aware, the vanilla industry is currently in crisis and there is an acute shortage of vanilla beans. The traders who purchase vanilla beans in volume are hopeful that as the new crop comes to market we will see prices drop some though there is no guarantee that this will occur. Traders are waiting to assess the market before purchasing beans as market prices are more than $600 a kilo at source.
Currently we have a limited supply of vanilla products and expect to have more beans in stock sometime next week. However, we are selling all of our products in small quantities so that we can assist as many of our customers as possible. We hope this will be a short-term situation and will keep you updated as we have more information.
We will also have a natural vanilla flavor soon. It is significantly less expensive than the extract and can be used as a bridge product until vanilla extract is available at more affordable prices.
If you are a home cook and would like to purchase four- or eight-ounce bottles of vanilla extract or other products, please visit our e-tailer at Vanilla Enchantment.
If you have questions, please contact us. We value your support and will do all we can to keep our vanilla products in stock. Thank you for your understanding.
