Vital wheat gluten price tendency

The Chinese FOB price of vital wheat gluten has kept rising since October last year because of environment protection policy. Many small and middle size manufacturers of wheat gluten located in Henan province and Anhui province were forced to shut down for non compliance with environment requirement.

China's environment protection policy also leads to a sharp increase in domestic demand of vital wheat gluten, and then the ongoing higher price. It is indicated that the FOB price will remain high recently because the manufacturers intend to satisfy domestic market for higher price.
