Due to the reduction of output of mid-late maturing Wenzhou mandarin in Zhejiang, Fujian and Jiangxi provinces this year, the purchase of raw materials in various factories will be mainly in Hunan and Hubei. However, raw materials in Hunan and Hubei will be little after December 15th, and the demand will be turned to Zhejiang. The output in Zhejiang also reduced this year, so many packers plus factories in other provinces will soon raise the purchase price as it did last year. The whole raw material cost is determined by the development of the processing situation.
