Turkish raisin exporters seem to have turned the trade dispute between the United States and China, which have placed tariffs on billions of dollars of each other's goods, into an opportunity.
They are enjoying increasing demand and have managed to rev up their exports to China after Beijing imposed additional tariffs on fruits and vegetables from the U.S.
Turkey's overall raisin exports from Sept. 1 to Nov. 16 amounted to nearly $162.71 million, up 9% compared to the same period of last year, according to Aegean Exporters' Association (EİB) data.
Exports to China in the said period increased by 14% year-on-year to $1.6 million, up from $1.4 million. Turkish exporters also achieved favorable results at the import fair held in China earlier in November, and expect a further rise in exports to the country.

Diminishing demand for Californian Raisin
There’s enough supply to meet the demand for raisins grown within the 50-mile radius of Fresno, California. “Our 2016 production in September was excellent,” said Kalem Barserian, CEO of the Raisin Bargaining Association in California. Quality was also good and with the larger world supply Barserian says price has come down 31 per cent or roughly 0.25/lb. “That’s helped the movement domestically as well as exports. We’re seeing an increase in the domestic market by about four percent and the export market we’re up 10 percent.” The price has allowed California’s raisins to stay competitive with other producing countries like Turkey, Chile, Argentina and Australia. “We used to be about 50 percent of the world production. Now we’re about 25 percent. I’ve been in the raisin business for 52 years so I’ve seen quite a bit of change in the world situation.”
Turkey was the top supplier of sultanas this season
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.

The attention of UK dried fruit traders has turned to the southern hemisphere producing countries. Sources in Mildura, Australia, report that harvesting of the 2017 sultana crop is running two or three weeks behind last season, due to unfavourable weather conditions at the time of flowering and berry set last year.

The sunpreme raisin grape is proving popular with producers because it costs less to harvest, according to Agricultural Research Service plant geneticist Craig Ledbetter.
He said the sunpreme dried without cane cutting and could save millions of dollars in production costs.
“With many grapes, crews must go out about two weeks before the harvest and cut the canes, which are the long branches on the vines that actually produce the grapes,” Mr Ledbetter said.
“Once the canes are cut, the grapes begin to wilt so they can be shaken into trays later.
“Cane cutting costs about $180 per hectare, which is roughly 36 per cent of total harvest costs.”
