MALATYA. Demand on the Turkish apricot market has improved significantly, much to the relief of traders and exporters. This has also had an impact on prices.

Buying interest and prices are rising

Astonished market players in Turkey explained that demand for all dried apricot varieties has exploded since last week. Both regular customers and new buyers from all over the world are enquiring about offers and signing contracts, which is a great relief for exporters after months of stagnation. The increased buying interest is also leading to higher prices - commodity prices have climbed by at least TRY 10/kg, so that export prices have risen by USD 100/mt compared to last week. No 2 dried apricots are currently trading at USD
