They are the products that are the most dynamic of the product, that is, suitable for the logistics road and shelf life. Therefore, a large part of our region’s exporters in Turkey. The region I mean is west of the Mediterranean, Kınık, Kumluova, Karadere, Ova, Eşen region. There are new and vibrant products in this area. One reason is performing here a large part of shipments of Turkey’s exporters, “he said.
Turkey Haller Federation Vice President Atabay Akgun, noting that the total daily 30-35 tr around shipments,” This 700 It corresponds to tons. This will increase in the coming weeks, reaching up to 80-85 trucks per day ”. Noting that export products are between 2.5-3 TL, Akgün said, “Soilless products are traded for 4 TL, and in the domestic market for 1.5 – 2.5 TL tomatoes. The products we call 1.5 TL are the products we call 2.. These are close to the approximate product cost. If we can switch to a production-based support model based on producer receipt, we will both eliminate that leakage in the agricultural and financial loss in the sector and we will develop a model that will partially breathe our producers and raise them up. Because this is the practice in European countries, in Egypt, Greece, Italy, Spain and Israel. Hopefully, studies are underway for a similar application for the coming years. I hope we will develop a model that will make our manufacturer stand up as a result of these studies, ”he said.
