MANISA/CAPE TOWN. The temperature rise in Turkey is slowly waking the vines from their winter dormancy. In South Africa, the drying phase is almost over, but the production result is much lower than expected.

Export increase before Ramadan

In the week before Ramadan, sultana exports from Turkey went up a good notch. About 5,534 mt of sultanas and raisins were shipped overseas last week, which is 2,200 mt more than this time last year. During the fasting month, however, the market tends to be less active. In total, 150,392 mt have been exported since the beginning of this season, which means that the export volume has increased by 10% year-on-year.
