MANISA. High prices mean that the Turkish sultana market is just bobbing along. Exporters immediately took advantage of currency losses in the lira to make prices a little more attractive for foreign buyers.

Higher prices in the new year

The Turkish sultana market continues to be characterised by low trading activity, with most shipments based on contract call-offs. While commodity prices are holding at their current level for the time being, exporters have used the depreciation of the Turkish lira to adjust their prices for prompt shipments slightly downwards. With the exception of organic sultanas, prices are therefore around USD 50/mt below the level for later shipments and can therefore be deducted from the prices listed below. Exporters are asking USD 2,400-2,650/m
