Mentha prices drifted lower by 0.91 per cent to Rs 1,124 per kg in futures trade today as speculators trimmed positions, driven by sluggish demand from industries at the spot market.

On similar lines, the oil for delivery in September contract declined by Rs 9.10, or 0.79 per cent, to Rs 1,137.90 per kg in 113 lots.

Analysts said offloading of positions by participants due to subdued demand from consuming industries in the spot market against ample stock positions on higher supplies from Chandausi in mainly led to the decline in mentha oil prices in futures trade.
