 The price of tonics is rising! Sea cucumber up 40percent, glue 20percent


In some of the sea cucumber stores in Dalian, the staff in the shop are busy packing and delivering the goods. The person in charge told the reporter that the sales volume of sea cucumber has increased significantly this year, doubling than usual.

With the increasing demand, some fishing grounds in Dalian have also increased the number of fishing. Wang Xin is a fisherman. In previous years, they only fished once a day. This year, when the reporter saw him, it was about 5:00 p.m., which was the third time that he had caught back on that day. Because the sea cucumber could not be overfished, they would complete the fishing task ahead of time this year.

Wang Xin, fisherman of Changxing Island fishing ground in Wafangdian City, Dalian: because the demand has reached this year, and we have to keep some sea cucumber species until next year to produce seeds, we will stop work for another 10 days this year.

Not only offline but also online, the sales data of tonics on online platforms are also eye-catching. The reporter learned from several e-commerce platforms that the sales of tonic comprehensive categories increased by about 50%, and the sales of some single products even doubled.

Xu Jing, general manager of Jingdong health tonic Department: in the first three quarters of this year, the sales growth rate of birds nest on Jingdong platform exceeded 100% year on year.

Traditional tonics are booming

Sea cucumber, birds nest and flower glue are all traditional tonics in China. This year, there has been an explosive growth trend, and the sound of rising is booming. What is the reason for this?

The reporter learned that the current price of ordinary grade glue is 1200 yuan per kilogram, while that of high grade is about 5000 yuan per kilogram, which is about 20% higher than that of the same period last year, while the average price of birds nest is about 15000 yuan per kilogram, with a year-on-year increase of 15%. In a fishing ground in Dalian, the price of fresh sea cucumber caught on that day has increased by more than 40% year on year.

Fresh sea cucumbers become the most common dried sea cucumbers in the market after a certain process. Due to the grade difference, a kilo of dried sea cucumbers usually needs 10 to 20 jin of live sea cucumbers, so the price of each kilo is high. In a market in Beijing, the price of dried sea cucumbers has risen to about 5000 yuan per kilogram. A shopkeeper told the reporter that the main production areas of sea cucumber are Liaoning and Shandong. The high temperature weather two years ago led to a decline in local production, which has not yet been fully recovered. The 40% price increase in this years production area will soon be transmitted to the terminal market.

Person in charge of Dalian Haixing Island Food Co., Ltd.: the output of sea cucumber in Dalian has lost 78% or 80%. The growth cycle of sea cucumber needs three to five years. From 2018 to now, it is exactly two years. However, the production cycle of sea cucumber has not recovered.

The prospect of tonic industry is broad

With the improvement of peoples health awareness and consumption, the industry format of tonics is also changing. Not only the consumer groups are becoming more diverse, but also new products such as personalized and customized are constantly enriched.

Industry insiders told reporters that in addition to the middle-aged and elderly, post-90s are also joining the ranks of nourishing and health preserving forces, and consumer demand is more diversified, which also puts forward new requirements for production enterprises.
