We want to expand this figure to 1.5 billion dollars in 2023. Cereals, pulses, oilseeds and products are at the top of our food industries in which we are strong in the US market, with an export of 373 million dollars. In the sector, our exports to the USA in general have increased by 43 percent in the last 3 years. Within our exports from the Aegean region to the USA, we recorded an increase of 61 percent in the last 3 years.”

“Our goal is to boost our exports to the USA to 1 billion dollars with our wide product range from vegetable oils, spices, oilseeds such as poppy seeds to sugary products, legumes to coffee. With the world’s first and only state-sponsored branding programme, we will continue to effectively execute our strategy that leads us to institutionalize and create strong value-added brands. During the pandemic period, we saw once again that countries that act in accordance with the era in agriculture and production policies and dominate the food market will always have a say,” Terci added.
