Top 10 Supermarket Retail Chains in Türkiye

The annual inflation rate in Türkiye accelerated to 64.8% in December 2023, the highest level since November 2022, according to the Turkish Statistical Institute.

The month-on-month inflation rate, however, dropped to 2.9% down from 3.3% in November, while food prices touched three-month highs, up 72%, from November’s 67.2% increase.

The central bank (CBRT) noted in November that the existing level of domestic demand, stickiness in services inflation, and geopolitical risks keep inflation pressures alive.

However, recent indicators suggest that domestic demand continues to moderate as monetary tightening is reflected in financial conditions.

CBRT further noted that inflation expectations and pricing behaviour have started to show signs of improvement.
