MALATYA. Things are still far from normal in Turkey's dried apricot market. The hike in export demand in recent weeks is having an impact on prices and suppliers are adjusting their offers accordingly. For some the market simply resembles a madhouse.

Exports one third up on last year

Demand for dried apricots is cleary up on last year. Although average export prices range USD 1/kg higher than one year ago, exports have risen by as much as 31% to 13,627 mt since the start of August as compared with the same period last year. As much as 3,154 mt were shipped overseas last week alone, which is 46% up on the same week last year.
