MANISA. The supply of goods on the Turkish sultana market is dwindling, and now the dried fruit exporters are also facing competition from the alcohol industry.

The TMO released its raw material stocks for sale at the beginning of the month and now that the alcohol industry is also showing increased interest, so prices are skyrocketing once again. Growers are testing the pain threshold of buyers, exporters are advised to buy sultanas at a level of TRY 115/kg, while spirits producers are even paying TRY 135-140/kg.

Exporters are now only quoting prices in response to specific enquiries, which at around USD 4.30/kg FOB Izmir are around EUR 0
