The small cardamom markets last week remained nearly steady on matching demand and supply at auctions held in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. The week witnessed good export demand even at the current price levels and that in turn has kept the market by and large steady, PC Punnoose, General Manager, CPMC, told BusinessLine. Exporters bought an estimated 100-120 tonnes of capsules last week, he said. Arrivals last week slipped to 427 tonnes from 463 tonnes the previous week. The auction average was vacillating between ₹1.305 and ₹1.350 a kg. Total arrivals during the season from August 1 up to February 18 were at 12,853 tonnes and sales were at 12,252 tonnes.
