Turkey‘s hazelnut exports jumped 75% in the first month of the season — September — vice president of the Black Sea Hazelnut and Products Exporters’ Union said.

“Around 46,000 tons of hazelnut is exported in a month,” Dursun Oğuz Gürsoy told Anadolu Agency, adding: “If we continue with this pace, we can export 310,000 tons of hazelnuts by the end of 2019-2020 season.”

Gürsoy noted that the union forecast 800,000 tons of hazelnut production between Sept. 2018 and Aug. 2019, thanks to good yield.
