Moreover, forecasts at the World Nut and Dried Fruit Congress last week also indicated a global production increase.

After the export lull during the holiday week, dried fruit exports from Turkey returned to their old form. Last week, 4,864 mt of sultanas and raisins were exported, compared to 3,194 mt in the same period last year. The total export volume since the beginning of this season is 179,303 mt, up almost 16,500 mt or 10% year-on-year.

Although market players report that the TMO should still have about 40,000-50,000 mt of sultanas, if exports continue at the current pace, there should be little carry-over stocks
