The Nielsen-Massey leadership team recently traveled to Madagascar where we toured several vanilla farms and met with growers, processers, distributors, exporters and government officials. We walked away from the trip feeling cautiously upbeat about prospects for the 2017 harvest, both in terms of its size and quality.

The 2017 vanilla growing campaign is nearing its conclusion, with this year's crop still undergoing curing and being processed for export. The aroma of the beans is good and their overall quality appears to be higher than last year. Even with the impact of losses from Cyclone Enawo, it now appears that the country will export between 1300 and 1600 tons of vanilla beans this year versus 1100 tons last year.
