Turkey top supplier of sultanas
Suppliers in China uniformly report that sales have dropped this season. They are pointing the finger at Turkey, where prices are at their lowest point in years. The drop in price could be one of the factors which have led to the increased global imports from Turkey in 2016. Sales to Germany even rose by 80% as compared to 2015. Exports to the UK, however, remained on a relatively stable level.
