Muhammet Öztürk, President of the Aegean Cereals Legumes and Oil Seeds Exporters’ Association emphasized that the cereals, pulses, and oilseeds sector has been consistently successful since the first month of 2022. “While we experienced more than 60 percent increase in exports in January and February, we witnessed records of up to 200 percent in the last period. In the first 8 months of 2022, we increased our exports of cereals, pulses, and oilseeds to 687 million dollars with an increase of 64 percent. We had given the signals that we would exceed 1 billion dollars in the first quarter. In the last one-year period from September 25, 2021, to September 24, 2022, our exports increased by 70 percent and reached 981 million dollars. With the Grain Corridor agreement, Turkey’s facilitating role was highly appreciated all over the world. We hope to see the positive impact of this on our Turkish cereals, pulses, and oilseeds sector in the coming period.” Öztürk said.
