The way to exist in the future is “smart agriculture”…

One quarter of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions come from food production.

Aegean exporters, who have been feeding the world with organic production for 36 years, draw attention to the climate crisis in Agriculture Week celebrated on January 11-17.

Stating that the agricultural sector is experiencing its golden age with the pandemic, Aegean Exporters’ Associations (EİB) Vice Chairman Birol Celep said, “The agricultural exports of the EİB increased by 4 percent in 2020, reaching 5 billion 100 million dollars.”

“In 2020, as the Aegean Dried Fruits and Products Exporters’ Association, we exported 846 million dollars. The value-added chain can be expanded by creating a great will with the awareness of organic production and common mind. Combating climate change is a race against time and an ethical showdown. Even the slightest effort is important. We have to be triggers,” Celep noted.

“Many projects are implemented for Organic Agriculture and Good Agricultural practices, seed banks, protection and expansion of agricultural areas and prevention of food waste. Now all consumers know that they need to seriously reflect on global issues. We can increase our brand value by equipping our products with innovations that will exist in the future,” Celep added.

“‘Save Food, Protect Your Table’ campaign initiated by our Minister of Agriculture and Forestry Mr. Bekir Pakdemirli, has mobilized the ecological sensitivity of the society,” Celep concluded…
