AYDIN. Although some suppliers are trying to sell as quickly as possible, prices have so far failed to change accordingly.

Exports range 15,000 mt lower than last year

Turkey shipped dried figs worth USD 9.1 million overseas between 30 September and 28 November. Germany is the main export destination with shipments to the country valued at USD 15.66 million. France ranks second (USD 13m) and the US third (USD 8.68m). Shipments to the US have, thereby, gained 19% in value over last year. Turkey's total dried fig and dried fig products exports range at 25,689 mt, more than 1,500 mt less than at this time last year.
