Turkey: important warning concerning pistachio nuts

Turkey: important warning concerning pistachio nuts | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Turkey’s Chambers of Agriculture Union (TZOB) Chairman Semsi Bayraktar, announced that an increase is expected in the production of pistachios, and to prevent a drop in prices, exports need to be increased. 

Bayraktar, in a written statement, stresses that in the years 2013 and 2014 the pistachio harvest experienced a decline, but this year 150,000-160,000 tons of production is expected. 

Fluctuations in production lead to instability in price, states Bayraktar. “An increase in pistachio production is expected and to prevent prices from falling too much, export channels need to be enforced.”
