Hazelnuts are sweet tree nuts that grow in temperate zones. They are primarily cultivated in Turkey, which produces about 60% of the world's total production. Hazelnuts are rich in protein and have high nutritional value. They have a high amount of dietary fiber that helps reduce cholesterol and the highest amount of proanthocyanidin in the nut family. Hazelnuts are used in products like spreads, chocolate bars, and coffee. They are also used to make hazelnut oil, which is used for medicinal purpose and personal grooming. The key end-users for this market are individual consumers, foodservice establishments, and industries.
Wide applications of the hazelnuts have increased the demand for hazelnuts in the market, but bad weather conditions have affected the production of the hazelnuts in past few years. Shortage of hazelnuts has increased the price and affordability issues among the end-users. The production of hazelnuts has reduced year on year from 2012 to 2014.
In 2014, Turkey was affected by adverse weather conditions during winter, frosts during spring, followed by drought conditions. The production of hazelnuts was severely affected, leading to an increase in prices. In order to combat this, companies had to reduce hazelnut consumption in their products or increase product prices. For example, in 2015 Nutella reduced hazelnut usage from 17% to 13% and RITTER SPORT increased the price of its hazelnut bar by 8%.
