Sharp rise in weekly exports
Although weekly exports are certainly catching up on last year, total exports are still lagging far behind this season. Turkey shipped 3,875 mt of seedless dried raisins overseas last week, which is up on the 2,848 mt shipped in the same week last year. Total exports range at 166,761 mt this season so far, which is down on the 193,643 mt shipped in the same period last year. The lack of suitable containers is partly to blame for this decline.
