WPB Week #34/16, 22 - 26 August 2016
Except in Malaysia, pepper prices at source markets remained stable, even increased in Sri Lanka. A marginal decrease of local price in dollar terms seen in Bangka and Lampung Indonesia was due to weakening of local currency against US Dollar.  In India, local price of Malabar black increased almost daily from INR 690 to INR 694 per Kg during the week. In dollar terms however, the average price was relatively stable.
