Energy crisis turns routes to Turkey in the agricultural supply chain
As the energy crisis, which started with the Ukraine-Russia war, affected Europe deeply, both Russian and European agricultural producers turned their attention to Turkish agricultural producers in the supply chain.
Halil Kozan, Chairman of the Board of the Greenhouse Construction Hardware and Equipment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (SERKONDER), stated that Turkey’s geopolitical position provides an advantage for the sector.
Kozan said, “This crisis will encourage countries to invest in modern greenhouse cultivation in order to solve on-site production and supply chain problems. Greenhouse cultivation is carried out on an area of 500 thousand hectares around the world. Our member companies, which have advanced technology and high production capacity, also have the capacity and ability to respond quickly to greenhouse projects that both Europe and Russia will need in this field.”
“Our country ranks 5th in greenhouse cultivation in the world and 2nd in Europe. Russia wants to increase greenhouse investments.
