ORDU. Quite a bit has happened on the Turkish hazelnut market since the beginning of the week. Must buyers hurry now?

The farmers are still insisting on higher prices which the buyers, however, are not prepared to pay. The crop turned out to be comparatively poor, in fact, which poses a problem for the farmers. A much greater predicament is the large amount of carry-overs from 2015, which is mainly in possession of some traders. Overall, there should be enough merchandise available on the market. And still the farmers want higher prices, although no real shortage of hazelnuts has occurred.
