TURKEY, UPWARD TREND IN THE PRICE OF OLIVES

The decreased production of olives in the Mediterranean Countries in 2013 will bring benefits to producers in Turkey, according to the Chamber of Agriculture of Aydin, an important area for the production of olives near Izmir.

Turkish producers are relieved considering that the season started badly. Prices were so low, below the production costs, that growers had decided to avoid to pick the olives.

However, the price has significantly increased, almost 40% at the moment, and is estimated to continue or even grow more in the coming months.

It should be noted that in the last five years the Turkish producers of olives and olive oil have gone through a difficult period.
