2.2 BILLION DOLLARS OBTAINED FROM HAZELNUT EXPORTS…

Turkey, the world’s biggest hazelnut supplier, had a bumper crop of revenues, earning 2.2 billion dollars from nut exports between last September and this July, a regional trade group said on Tuesday.

Data from the Black Sea Hazelnut and Products Exporters’ Association (KFMİB) showed that the 11-month figure soared 44 percent year-on-year.

So far this season, which starts in September and ends in August, the volume of hazelnut exports rose 26 percent on an annual basis to 331,066 tons.

Some 77 percent of Turkey’s hazelnut exports in this period went to EU countries, with more than 256,000 tons generating 1.7 billion dollars of income during the same period.
