AYDIN. Since the beginning of the season, 50,822 metric tonnes of dried figs and dried fig products have been shipped overseas, which is an...

... increase of 18% over the same period last year. Weekly exports, on the other hand, could not keep up with last year's result. Spot purchases for deliveries to the Arab world and EU countries are driving the Turkish dried fig market. Germany is currently the most important European buyer country.
