As per the latest data compiled by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABARE), AUSTRALIAS January chickpea exports at 62,781 tonnes dropped 22 per cent from the revised December total of 80,161t.
The drop reflects the impact of the tariff imposed by India in December, which saw January sales to that market total 675t, down from 21,000t in December and 185,672t in November.
While India is Australias biggest chickpea customer, Bangladesh and Pakistan are significant secondary markets. Both destinations increased their tonnage in January from December.
Tertiary markets buying unprocessed chickpeas and chana dahl have taken on increased significance in the absence of bulk demand from India.
