AYDIN. Market players reckon that fig processors will have to make their capacities available to their colleagues from Malatya for at least another two months. Meanwhile, demand for dried figs remains modest.

Optimistic weather outlook

In the Turkish province of Aydin, temperatures increased significantly at the beginning of the week, reaching around 15-19°C during the day. Nevertheless, weather services forecast rain and snowfall for the coming days. In the mountain regions, it already snowed in the past weeks, which benefited the fig trees.

As in previous weeks, fig exporters continue to process apricot shipments in addition to their own products. Market players even expect many apricot processors in Malatya to resume work in two months at the earliest
