IZMIR. Turkish exports of dried sour cherries experienced a heavy damper at the beginning of the new season. Due to the low demand, export prices also had to be adjusted.

Export prices need to be lowered

Turkish dried fruit traders are currently complaining about a lack of demand. Dried sour cherries are no exception. The new crop is available on the market and the quality is good. Meanwhile, farmgate prices are holding at TRY 40/kg, which is considerably more than the TRY 15/kg they cost at the beginning of last season, but traders had expected further increases. In addition, export prices are coming under selling pressure, having fallen from USD 10/kg to USD 9/kg FOB Izmir for the new crop since the end of August.
