Turkey will import onions to lower prices

Turkey will import onions to lower prices

The entrance of vegetables to certain countries usually ends in a drop in prices in the areas of destination, which directly affects the producers of vegetables like green onions and potatoes.

That objective is pursued by Turkey, which after months of rising prices, has decided to import certain quantities of onions and potatoes, a tactic that - as we might suppose - has not satisfied the farmers.

In fact, farmers believe that only supermarkets are benefiting from the high prices of onions and potatoes, while the farmer continues to charge them at much lower prices, so that the importation of these vegetables could, even, definitely hurt them.

What is certain is that in Turkey have been produced a 50% onions if we compare with last year.
