MANISA. Sultana traders in Turkey will be forced to adapt to the market situation sooner rather than later. Issue is that production prospects are highly encouraging and that the state still holds large carry-over stocks. The market can at best speculate on when exactly the TMO will intervene.

Weekly exports on the rise

Turkey shipped 4,189 mt of seedless dried raisins overseas last week, which is nominally up on the 4,008 mt exported in the same week last year. Toal exports for the season, however, fall short of last year. A volume of 175,725 mt has been shipped overseas since the start of the season, which is down on the 200,000 mt shipped in the same period in 2019/2020.

MANISA. Harvesting has nearly been completed in Turkey. Rain has, fortunately, not caused extensive damage. Although the TMO is purchasing type 9 sultana for TRY 13.00/kg, which is TRY 0.50/kg higher than last year, farmers are highly disappointed. They had expected prices ranging at TRY 16.00/kg for type 9 sultanas. The exporters are also not too happy with the state-run organisation.

TEHRAN. Date production is estimated at 230,000 mt in Khuzestan Province this year. Exports of high-quality dates are expected to climb by 5,000 mt on last year to 85,000 mt. Khuzestan is, in fact, Iran’s most important province when it comes to exports. Drought is, however, a challenge.
