At the moment, there are no unusual occurrences and temperatures between 17 and 23°C and occasional rainfall have been reported for the next few days. However, some exporters have started to buy more raw materials from growers as they expect demand to increase after the Ramadan festivities, while others assume that the current demand situation will not change for the time being.
