TAGS: / / /

We have reports that prices for Vanilla Beans have increased tenfold.  Prices for Vanilla Absolute have reflected this, with dramatic increases.  One dealer has advised the demand for Vanilla Beans has expanded exponentially.  While bad weather, smuggling of beans out of Madagascar, and increased labor costs might play a role, might this not be the effect of changing to Natural from Synthetic?
