Turkish cherry on its way to China

Turkish Exporters Assembly Board Member and Aegean Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Exporters’ Association’s Chairman Riza Seyyar stated that they overcomed all the obstacles of cherry exportation to People’s Republic of China. Seyyar said demand highly increased for Turkish cherry from China.

Seyyar mentioned that problems used to occur betwen Turkey and Far Eastern countries because of the Mediterranean fruit fly existence. “Talks have been held and 9 producers and six packing plants were permitted to export cherry as a result of mutual visits. Chinese importers have begun to come with cherry demand. We expect a substantial increase in exports to China this year,” Seyyar said.

Indicating that the first cherry parties were sent to China last year and they are expecting an increasing cherry trade during this period, Seyyar said, “We are working hard to get an export permit from Vietnam in the coming days and there is no doubt that these products will be dominant in these markets with their quality. We intend to open the gates which are closed to us until now” Seyyar told.


Emphasizing that air cargo carried 3,500 tons of products in 2016 and 6,200 tons in 2017, “We have recorded an increase of 18% in dollar terms and in the year of 2018 we aim to export 10 thousand tons of products via air cargo” Seyyar added.

Seyyar noted that he has been the chairman of the board of Aegean Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Exporters’ Association for four years and also a member of Turkish Exporters’ Assembly (TİM) Board of Directors. “From time to time we had to leave our company’s business back and work towards industry’s expectations. We have participated in more than 30 meetings with the participation of our ministers and senior bureaucrats since we took the office and have expressed our problems. We represented our members in the best way, and we worked hard to resolve all the problems delivered by our members through initiatives, efforts, and endeavors at the highest level public and private sector institutions. We have repeatedly expressed the inadequacy of support for agriculture products in every sector for our industry, and we have provided services to our members with more than 10 concrete projects. As a result of these, over 1,250 written press articles and over 3 thousand internet news covered our works in the year of 2017″ he said.


Underlining that they are strongly opposed to the restriction of exportation of products such as tomatoes and pomegranates to the Russian Federation, Seyyar said “All the exporting firms that meet standards by determining the competencies of firms instead of company restriction, applications are eligible for free trade. The Prime Minister himself personally involved in this process.”


Describing that they have participated in many fairs as association to increase their awareness in the current export markets and to introduce the Turkish fresh fruit and vegetable products sector in new markets, Seyyar mentioned “We have been working in both fresh fruit and vegetable sector and fruit and vegetable products sector in Germany, Russia, Hong Kong, Israel and Dubai that we made the promotion of our products. We always shared the purchase requisitions we had gathered at these fairs with our members.”
