Press release…

Fisheries and animal products sector escalated its 2023 target by 1 billion dollars…

While the majority of export sectors updated their 2023 export targets downwards, the Turkish aquaculture and animal products sector increased 1 billion dollars by revising it upwards.

Expressing that they achieved the 2.5 billion dollars export target set for 2023, 3 years ago, Aegean Fisheries and Animal Products Exporters’ Association Chairperson Bedri Girit noted that they have increased their 2023 export target to 3.5 billion dollars.

Speaking at the Financial General Assembly of the Aegean Fisheries and Animal Products Exporters’ Association, Girit explained that as exporters, they not only bring foreign currency to the country, but also contribute to Turkey’s international relations with the friendships they have established.

Pointing out that as the fisheries and animal products sector, they offer three meals a day to humanity, Girit said, “We offer eggs, honey and dairy products for breakfast, chicken for lunch and fish for dinner. That’s why we were less affected by the pandemic process than other sectors. In 2020, we exported 2 billion 450 million dollars. With the rise in exports we will realize in 2021, 2022 and 2023, we will reach an export figure of 3.5 billion dollars”.

Girit also mentioned that with the support of the Ministry of Trade, the food associations within the Aegean Exporters’ Association implemented the TURQUALITY Project in order to increase the export of Turkish food products in the US market.

“We entered the curriculum at the University of Las Vegas for a year, that the chefs studying at the university would graduate by learning Turkish tastes and that they would include them in their menus in their professional lives, thus aiming to rise the export of Turkish food products to the USA exponentially,” Girit added…
