Turkey’s organic food exports rose 17 percent year-on-year in 2017

 

Turkey’s organic food exports rose 17 percent year-on-year in 2017, according to Aegean Dried Fruit and Products Exporters’ Association (EKMİD) head Birol Celep.

The country earned $87 million last year in revenue from organic food exports to 68 countries, Celep said in a statement on Jan. 23.

Celep said the exports also rose by 10 percent on a weight basis compared to the previous year, hitting 21,000 tons.

“Turkey exports raisins, dried figs, nuts and dried apricots the most. The actual export volume of organic food is at least fivefold the amount on record,” Celep said, adding the difference stemmed from the improper filing of export declarations.

“The numbers appear lower since the products are not properly labelled as organic in export declarations,” he said.

Celep added that the largest organic food importer from Turkey was Germany, followed by the United States and France. (HÜRRİYETDAILYNEWS)
