Turkish Dried Figs, Market Update
Mundus Agri. With only two weeks to go until Ramadan starts, demand is up for Turkey's dried figs. The presidential elections will also have an enormous impact.
Growers in Aydin are delighted with the rain that has finally arrived, as any drought concerns have been alleviated for now. Exports are also running at full speed. As Ramadan will start on 23 March, demand is up in the Middle East. Traders reckon that demand will remain high in the next two weeks before returning to more normal levels again. At 1,388 mt weekly, exports have more than doubled on the 610 mt registered last year. Total exports for the season are also up on last year and have reached 41,827 MT.
