Supermarkets in Turkey are selling a limited amount of sugar to customers due to supply chain issues, local media reported.
According to ahvalnews.com, Galip Aykac, Chairman, Retailers Association said that the supermarkets have taken a decision to limit purchase of sugar due to supply chain issue.
Last week sugar was not available in supermarkets for sale, he said.
The Turkish Sugar Refineries Corporation (Turkseker) has maintained the prices of sugar at an optimum level but the private companies have hiked the sugar prices by 40% and they were forced to limit supply to markets leading to shortage. Turkseker has also raised its prices by 25% but the demand supply gap continues, according to Aykac.
