MANISA. With supplies of the already low sultana production dwindling, growers are seizing the opportunity to further increase prices.

Ramadan boosts exports

With Ramadan approaching and growing call-off figures from long-term contracts, demand in the Turkish sultana market is high despite the expensive prices. Large growers are playing with this and are holding back their goods, as they know that higher prices may well be realised later in the season when stocks of this season's small production run out. While export prices have remained stable compared to last week, commodity prices have risen by another TRY 1-2/kg. Turkish sultanas, type 9 in regular quality are currently trading at TRY 62-64/kg
