AYDIN. Dried fig supplies are relatively low this season and demand patterns have changed. Growers are concerned over drought-like conditions.

Prices remain high

Trading is still largely subdued due to Christmas and New Year. The growers in Turkey are very concerned over the prevailing drought-like conditions and hope that this will not impact the quality of the fruit as the next few months will prove decisive. Exporters have no intention of cutting prices. Issue is that supplies are limited, while nine months are still left of the current season. Unlike in other years demand is expected to persist and market players are not reckoning with carry-overs.
