ORDU. Despite rumours and speculations over possible crop damages, Turkey’s hazelnut shrubs escaped the risk of sudden frosts in March and April unharmed. At present, temperatures, however, range below normal, which is delaying developments. Italy’s production will also prove decisive for suppliers.

Traders and producers are in fact gearing up for next week’s World Nut and Dried Fruit Congress (INC), which will provide a clearer picture on supply and demand. Reports from Italy are mixed. Although prospects for the new crop are quite encouraging in Italy at present, producers prefer to be cautious. Issue is that drought may very well create extensive damage in summer. Suppliers in Turkey are also carefully observing developments in Italy as production here will largely determine Ferrero’s purchases.
