Hazelnuts, Price Speculations
Mundus-Agri: The TMO offers leave buyers dissatisfied, as overly favorable sales by some suppliers have created unrealistic expectations. Political developments are also strongly influencing the market, and market players are eagerly awaiting Ferrero's actions.
Rainfall could affect quality
The Turkish hazelnut market is currently buzzing with activity. The farmers are still satisfied with the growing conditions, and the quantity of the crop is not threatened for the time being. However, there could be a problem with the quality because announced rainfalls in the Black Sea region could, on the one hand, delay the harvest and, on the other hand, lead to mold infestation and increased aflatoxin levels. However, market players are not too concerned yet. According to their reports, demand is present, but it could be better.
