    The vanilla market has been in significant deficit since 2014/15 with prices increasing from £50/kg in 2012 to over £650/kg today. Data analytics company Mintec forecasts the market will remain tight for the remainder of 2017.

    PrimeStox went in search of the best quality artisanal vanilla to supply premium bakeries, restaurants and smaller shops in the UK. Comoros was chosen because it is close to Madagascar, the biggest producer, but still produces it in a traditional way.

    PrimeStox is buying the first £25,000 - about 50kg. PrimeStox is investing £5,000 of its own funds and would like you to invest too. You can earn 15% profit when it is sold in 7 months.

    The Producers

    Aboubakar Abdoulwahab

    President of the National Vanilla Office, Comoros

    "Comorean vanilla commands a premium on the international market. We harvest a little later and cure the vanilla slowly to ensure less water and a fuller flavour."

    President of the National Vanilla Office, Comoros

    "Comorean vanilla commands a premium on the international market. We harvest a little later and cure the vanilla slowly to ensure less water and a fuller flavour."

    Producing the perfect vanilla requires skill. Between May and July crops are harvested. Cutting too early risks affecting the taste.

    Then producers have just 2 days to boil the green pods. In Comoros just five kilos of green are needed to make one kilo of black. In Madagascar as much as 10 kilos of green are needed for a kilo of black.

    Once boiled, the pods are laid out daily in the sunshine to dry. This continues for several months.

    Faithfulness to this process guarantees quality.

    Packaging is also important. Vacuum packing should be avoided. The ideal packaging is light grease proof paper and dark, dry conditions.

    • The Proposal

      PrimeStox will purchase 100kg of first quality vanilla between June and November 2017.

      This offer is for the first 50kg.

      When the vanilla is dried a sample will be sent and final price set. The indicative price for 50kg is £25,000, including freight and import duties. PrimeStox is investing £5,000 of its own funds.

      PrimeStox representatives in Comoros will monitor the consistency of the product and the weight and will be responsible for flying it to London by Kenya Airways air freight.

      In the UK it will be stored in a certified organic warehouse. It will be repacked in tins and tubes bearing the PrimeStox logo.

      PrimeStox will sell directly to trade buyers including top restaurants and bakeries. Many are unable to source quality vanilla today. A single bakery can buy 10kg if the quality is right.

      In addition the product will be sold through the site via an auction mechanism to smaller buyers. This will bring an element of transparent market pricing.

      Buying the vanilla for £500/kg including freight and duties and adding 10% for packaging and in-country transport, means a sale price of £625/kg is required to pay the PrimeStox investors.

      The current market price for 16-18cm vanilla is £675/kg in London and the 18cm variety (premium gourmet) is considered unobtainable, warranting an even higher price.

      Investors will own the product - the second most valuable spice in the world after saffron - as security until they are repaid. Vanilla has a shelf life of 2 years minimum.
