Agriculture, Food and Beverages

Turkey is a significant agricultural producer and exporter and has the advantage of a strategic location straddling Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.According to the OECD, Turkey ranked first in the European Union and seventh in the world by agricultural production in 2018.It is a world leader in the production of hazelnuts, apricots, cherries, figs and quinces. Turkey is a significant importer of agricultural products such as live bovine animals, wheat, pulses, and feed ingredients.

With its large, growing and young domestic market(half the population is under 32 years of age), coupled with rising income levels, there is increased demand for western products and technologies.In addition to demand for primary agricultural products there are growing market opportunities for agricultural services and equipment.
