Asia’s sorbitol prices rose at the end of the third quarter, rising to $665/tonne FOB SE Asia during the week ended 28 September as compared with $635/tonne FOB SE Asia in the week ended 6 July. Prices were supported by plant maintenance works in Indonesia, a key sorbitol exporting country. Indonesia’s Sorini Agro Asia operated its 140,000 tonne/year sorbitol plant in East Java, near Surabaya port, at 70% of capacity in September, similar to the previous month when the company reduced the run rates to 70% rate amid requirements for plant equipment to undergo certification. Domestic prices of feedstock tapioca starch listed by the Thai Tapioca Starch Association (TTSA) stemmed losses during the week ended 19 September. Over the same period, tapioca starch export prices remained unchanged after having declined for the past four successive weeks, according to TTSA data. Demand during the third quarter was by and large stable to soft.
