Fresh Plaza - Fig, grape and apple seasons keep Turkish exports very busy

“We’re running three different export programs concurrently”

For exporters in Turkey who deal with multiple fruits at the same time, sometimes things can get pretty hectic. For one Turkish exporter, they are currently dealing with three different products simultaneously. Luckily, it isn’t all done by a single team. Each region has it’s own team, handling their separate responsibilities.

For Ani Tarim it’s a busy time of the year, says Mehmet Cakmak, sales and marketing manager for the Turkish fresh produce exporter: “At the moment, we’re running three different export programs concurrently; the Bursa black fig, table grape and apple are all ongoing. All programs are operated in different places by different teams that exist within our company,” he explains.
