AYDIN. Exporters make price corrections due to exchange rate fluctuations, but the offers of the various suppliers still differ by up to USD 1,500/mt.

Prices decline by USD 100/mt

Due to the continuing devaluation of the Turkish lira, export prices for dried figs have fallen by around USD 100/mt this week. However, the market is still far from a uniform price picture. The offers of the various suppliers differ considerably; for larger dried fruits the difference can be up to USD 1,500/mt, for smaller fruits it is about USD 500/mt. The different prices depend on the growing region - high altitudes or valleys - as well as the smaller supply of goods in export quality.
