MALATYA. Although the season has been running for three months now, the TMO has still not announced any base prices. This is causing a lot of concern among market players. Moreover, it remains questionable whether the high export target can be achieved by the end of the year.

Better demand situation in the new year?

Turkish market players state that the apricot market is currently extremely quiet. Demand remains weak and with at least 100,000 mt of dried apricots available, traders expect prices to fall in the new year at the latest. Commodity have already declined compared to last week, except for the jumbo variety, which is scarce this season. FOB farm prices for dried apricots, no 2 are currently at TRY 95-100/kg, while no 3 and no 4 are trading for TRY 80-90/kg. Export prices remain unaffected so far due to the unstable exchange rate
