MANISA. Although Turkish sultana farmers are dissatisfied with the purchase prices of the TMO, as they had expected significantly higher offers, they currently prefer to sell their raw materials to the state organisation.

Exports remain above last year's level

Exports from Turkey have been going very well so far. In the first weeks of the new season, a total of 15,904 mt of sultanas and raisins were shipped overseas. Last week, the export volume of 6,519 mt was even 600 mt higher than the result of the same week last year.
