Happy producers in Turkey
Harvesting will be completed by next week as growers in Turkey state. Adverse weather conditions have, however, delayed drying by around ten days and the season is now around twenty days late on last year. These delays have also impacted prices as the rates for high-quality dried figs continue to rise.
Raw dried fig prices have climbed to TRY 72/kg. The prices for big and jumbo-sized dried figs even range at TRY 80-90/kg. Prices have, thereby, more than doubled on last year’s TRY 30-35/kg and producers are very happy. Retailer
