Speculations over Ferrero
Estimates state that the TMO has purchased around 20,000-25,000 mt of inshell hazelnuts so far and sales to the state-run organisation continue at full speed. The free market has no chance of competing with the TMO’s purchasing prices of TRY 52.00-53.00/kg. Agricultural Credit Cooperatives are also offering relatively attractive prices of TRY 47/kg, but rumour has it that purchasing volumes will be capped at 4,000 mt or even less.
The prices for raw hazelnut kernels size 11-13 mm and 13-15 mm have risen to TRY 89.00-90.00/kg t
