MALATYA. After the high demand last season, producers had increasingly focused on the production of unsulphured dried apricots. However, as buying interest is weak this season, they are now sitting on the stocks.

Favourable weather conditions

In Malatya, the snowmelt is progressing and the flowering season is approaching. Weather conditions continue to be very favourable. Exporters are currently refraining from buying raw materials because demand from overseas is low and they have sufficient stocks, while traders want to sell their goods as quickly as possible. The same applies to exporters who want to empty their warehouses, so the low buying interest in the market is creating a slight panic mood. Farmgate prices range between TRY 80 and 85/kg.
