The first ship to export dried figs will set sail on October 11

The first exported product of Turkey, which is defined as the sacred fruit in the Qur’an, the Bible and the Torah, will firstly be exported on October 11, 2017 in the 2017/18 season. The ships carrying dry figs will depart from the port of Izmir on October 11, 2017 to all parts of the world.

Birol Celep, Chairman of the Board of Ege Dry Fruits and Products Exporters Union, said to the exporters of dried figs “Do not panic. Let’s turn 78 thousand 200 tons of harvest to added value”

In order to determine the first export date in the season of 2017/18, the fig producers who are members of the Aegean, Southeastern Anatolia and Istanbul Exporters Unions came together at the Annual General Assembly Meeting of Dry Fig Recruitment Consultants, which is the world leader in Turkey’s production and exports.

The exporting companies participating in the meeting unanimously accepted Wednesday, October 11, 2017 as the first export date. This date will become official and will go into effect after the approval of the Turkish Exporters Assembly and the Ministry of Economy.

Birol Celep, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Ege Dry Fruit and Products Exporters Association, stated that they exported 60 thousand 255 tons of dried fig crop, out of the 72 thousand tons of harvest in the 2016/17 season of Turkey, and that they aim to reach 62-63 thousand tons until the end of the season.

Celep pointed out that the dried fig crop for the 2017/18 season was predicted as 78,200 thousand tons, “This year there is a delay of 7-10 days due to the weather conditions in the crop. That’s why we identified the date of 11 October 2017 as the first export date. There is an increase of 8 percent on the record. Even if there are some problems due to humidity in quality, we have to convert the harvest to added value without panic. All stakeholders in the sector should act with common sense, “he said.
