Nominal rise in prices
Rain has finally been forecast in Aydin this week after the area witnessed weeks of extremely dry conditions, which prompted concerns over a possibly pronlonged period of drought. As trading is largely subdued and only few sales are taking place the exporters are able to concentrate on processing existing orders. Although demand as such is good, supplies are limited. Raw material prices range at TRY 23-34/kg depending on variety and supplier. Export prices are nominally up with dried lerida no 2 figs trading at USD 5,275/mt FOB Izmir.
