Sinan Kızıltan, Chairman of the Turkish Fisheries and Animal Products Exporters’ Associations Sector Board, stated that they make production to meet the world’s need for protein for three meals and added that after these efforts, they managed to take place in the TIM Top 1000 Exporters List with 21 companies and that 12 of the 21 companies are Aegean exporters and that they are proud of this.

Emphasising that 11 Aegean companies have succeeded in exporting 1 billion 250 million dollars in 2023, Kızıltan said: “In our fisheries, poultry, egg, dairy and honey sub-sectors, we meet Türkiye’s needs and export to more than 100 countries. It is necessary to look at exports as the insurance of our producers.”
