Veysel Memiş, Chairman of the Board of the Mediterranean Cereals, Pulses, Oilseeds and Products Exporters’ Association (AHBİB), announced that they realized an export of 1.45 billion dollars between January and September 2022 with an increase of 38 percent compared to the same period of the previous year.

Emphasizing that together with Türkiye’s geopolitical advantage, quality and cost-effective production plays an important role in the export of grains, pulses, oilseeds and their products, AHBİB Chairperson Veysel Memiş said, “We believe that better results will emerge and that successes will continue to increase with the appreciation of the achievements.”

“With this in mind, we rewarded our 26 members who gave the strongest support to regional exports in 2021. Now we are creating the AHBİB Top 100 List. We will give certificates to our 100 members who signed the most exports in 2021 as a thank you. Our ancestors’ ingenuity is subject to compliment. Based on the motto ‘Unflattering effort is a waste’, we believe that the efforts of the people behind that success should be appreciated and highlighted as much as the success itself,” he noted.

“We are confident that every success granted will pave the way for greater success in life, greater investments in the business world and will return to our country as much more export income,” he added.

“We supported the exports of the sector by 17.68 percent”

Stating that Türkiye, which provides support to the food security of humanity in 207 countries with more than 2 thousand products, exported 8,25 billion dollars of grains, pulses, oil seeds and products with an rise of 29 percent between January and September 2022, Memiş concluded, “In September, our Association, which realized exports of 183.1 million dollars with a spike of 34, achieved an export value of 1 billion 459 million dollars by raising 38 percent in the first 9 months of the year. We have ramped up our exports in more than 100 countries in the global arena. With this performance we achieved, we supported the sector’s exports in the country by 17.68 percent.”
