Milk producers will breathe thanks to China…
China has become the 6th country to which the dairy industry exports the most in 5 months.
The Turkish dairy industry has made a fast entry into China, where it received an export visa in May 2020. Turkey has showed a success of selling over 7 million dollars of dairy products to China.
The fact that China imports more than 6 billion dollars of dairy products annually, also whets the appetite of the Turkish aquaculture industry. Thus aquaculture sector aims to export 100 million dollars to China.
Underlining that milk producers are experiencing a serious bottleneck currently because of milk prices, Turkey Fisheries and Animal Products Exporters’ Association Industry Board Chairman Sinan Kızıltan said, “In this process, emergence of the Chinese export visa and start of the exports to this country will breathe the sector in the future.”
Kızıltan shared the information that 54 companies producing at world standards in the Turkish dairy industry received permission to export to China and noted, “Our companies, which received export permission to China, contacted with Chinese importers in digital environment during the pandemic period. 17 companies succeeded in exporting 6,590 tons of dairy products in the last 5 months.”
“We believe that our other companies with export permits will also start exporting to China in the upcoming period. By the end of 2020, we expect our dairy products export to China to reach the 25-30 million dollar band and reach 100 million dollars in the following years,” Kızıltan added.
China rises to sixth in five months…
Stating that the dairy products industry has exported 254 million dollars in the last period of 2020 and that Iraq is in the first place with exports of 52.5 million dollars, and Saudi Arabia preferred Turkish dairy products worth 42 million dollars, Kızıltan concluded, “In the meantime Turkey achieved an export of 16.8 million dollars to the United Arab Emirates, 13.6 million dollars to Kuwait, 12.1 million dollars to Egypt. China has become the 6th country to which we export the most in a short time.”
