Where is mentha used?
Mentha oil is mostly used in the pharma industry, cosmetics industry, FMCG sector as well as confectionery products. India is the world’s largest mentha oil producer and exporter. The highest yield of mentha oil is in UP. UP accounts for about 80 per cent of the total mentha oil production in the country.
In the previous season, mentha oil production was very high. According to market sources, the yields could be between 40,000-56,000 tonnes this year, up by 40 per cent. Due to this, the availability of mentha was very high and the prices could not rise much. About 75 percent of mentha oil produced in the country is exported. Therefore, more foreign demand than domestic plays a big role in fixing prices.
