MANISA. Turkey may start the new season with carry-in supplies of organic sultanas for the first time ever. Prices are highly attractive. Production, however, very much depends on the weather and traders prefer to be cautious at present, despite encouraging production prospects.

Exports remain high

Turkey's sultana exports continue to perform well. Suppliers are not only busy shipping existing contracts but are also receiving new enquiries. While weekly exports ranged at 4,797 mt this time last year, they currently range at 5,497 mt. Turkey has shipped 189,509 mt of seedless dried raisins overseas this season so far, which is 18,000 mt up on last year.

While the 62nd International Dried Grape Conference held online on 3 November showed that global sultana and raisin production will decline by 4.5% in the Northern Hemisphere and by 3.5% in the Southern Hemisphere, exporters in Turkey are working at full capacity to complete their orders before Christmas. Shipments are, however, falling short of expectations.
