MALATYA. As the situation on the Turkish financial market is extremely unstable, exporters are currently refraining from making offers and are only responding to firm purchase requests. How the situation will develop further is currently uncertain.

Rapid rise in farmgate prices

The chaos on the financial market and the resulting currency fluctuations as well as the renewed devaluation of the Turkish lira have driven up farmgate prices on the apricot market massively. Last week they were still at TRY 70-75/kg; with the current prices of TRY 87/kg, the fears of market players have now even been exceeded and it is expected that the limit has not yet been reached. As there is no end to the increase in sight at the moment and it also remains unclear how the situation of the lira will develop, exporters are currently not issuing offers, but only prices for firm requests.

Demand remains high

Meanwhile, demand remains high and exports continue to do well. Last week, exports of Turkish dried apricots and apricot products stood at 1,880 mt, compared to 2,035 mt in the same week last year. Since the beginning of the season, exports amount to 43,199 mt compared to 40,405 mt in the same period last year.
