MANISA. Although the TMO is expected to continue to buy sultanas and raisins, this does not automatically mean that these stocks will immediately become available again next year. Especially since the state-run organisation will have to sell the remaining supplies from last year's crop first. With exports perforning well and the TMO actively buying it will be interesting to see what volumes will be available for export.

Exports up on last year

Exports gained additional pace last week as Turkey shipped 5,589 mt of seedless dried raisins overseas, which is up on the 3,956 mt registered in the same week last year. Total exports have climbed to 80,535 mt since the start of the season, which is an increase on last year's 76,936 mt.
