MANISA. During the Christmas and New Year holidays, the Turkish sultana market was quiet as usual, and there was hardly any trading activity in the first week of January either. Weekly exports show a slight upward trend.

Quiet days in prospect

According to Turkish market players, the sultana market has not yet awoken from its Christmas and New Year slumber and, as expected, is quiet and uneventful. Traders do not expect purchases to pick up noticeably this week or next, while farmers and exporters are of the same opinion and are bracing themselves for a quiet week. Prices are at the same level as before the holidays and are only subject to slight exchange rate fluctuations. Turkish sultanas, grade A, type 9 are at USD 2,400-2,500/mt FOB Izmir.
