As a result of the health benefits associated with pomegranates, the German consumption of pomegranates is increasing. An interesting opportunity for pomegranate exporters lies in exports of ready-to-eat pomegranate arils. Producers in the Southern Hemisphere have the potential to offer pomegranates in the offseason of the Northern Hemisphere, where most pomegranates are produced.
The European market for fresh chilli peppers is a specialised market, which is supplied primarily by producers in Southern Europe, Turkey and Northern Africa. Opportunities can be found in specific varieties.
Turkey continues to be one of the world’s major producers of fresh fruit and vegetables. Stone fruit accounts for 14 percent of fruit production in Turkey, the third most significant after deciduous and citrus fruits. Most stone fruit is consumed fresh in the domestic market.
Turkish raisin production is predicted to increase slightly in MY 2012 compared to the previous year and reach 270,000 MT. The weather conditions were rather good in most raisin producing areas this year.
MY 2011 production was recorded to be lower than earlier predictions, and at 250,000 MT was the same as the MY 2010 level.
One major change in Turkish agricultural regulations this year was the combination of several laws (the Food, Feed, Veterinary Services and Plant Health Laws) into one overarching Law called the Veterinary Services, Plant Health, Food and Feed Law (No: 5996). This new Law was published on June 13, 2010 and slated for implementation on December 13, 2010, although implementing regulations have yet to be published.
MY 2011 was a stable year for all deciduous fruits. Production of apples increased about 8 percent in MY 2011 compared to the previous year and reached 2,700,000 MT. Production is estimated to continue increasing in MY 2012 as well.
