Market players informed that price increases have now become almost a habit. Raw material prices are traded at 60 TL/kg meanwhile for Jumbo size apricots. Industrial and small-sized apricots are almost nill at the market, and, strange but true, increases of dried apricots continue.
Market players informed that buyers order mostly on a prompt basis but that there is also a slight increase in the demands, especially from Arabic countries.
Exporters expressed again that submitted offers are still valid daily only and subject to final approval. Export prices increased again due to more stable exchanges.
