AYDIN. Suppliers in Turkey are gearing up for the dried fig export season, which will officially start on Wednesday.

Lower prices and big price gap

Since the exporters have already been busy preparing over the last few weeks loading of the new crop can start immediately. Overseas demand is also said to be good. Due to the decline in value of the Turkish lira, export prices range as much as USD 0.20/kg lower than last week. Prices on offer, however, differ notably. This price gap is prompted by the large difference in farmgate prices for mountain and valley figs as well as supplies for figs in export quality being more limited.
