Hong Kong is Turkey's biggest importer of fresh fruit and vegetables

  17.06.2019    

Turkey earned over US$18 million in revenue from fresh fruit and vegetable exports made via Turkish Cargo, a subsidiary company of the national flag carrier Turkish Airlines (THY), last year, a 71 percent rise in value compared to the previous year.
Statistics from the Aegean Exporters' Association (EIB) show that Turkey's fresh fruit and vegetable exports amounted to some $2.33 billion in 2018. The rise in the export of fresh fruit and vegetables was mainly because of the agreement signed with Turkish Cargo on making special discounts and flying to new destinations in May 2017.
The largest amount of fresh fruits and vegetables, totalling $3.202 million, was exported to Hong Kong via air cargo, followed by Norway at $2.229 million and Singapore at $1.344 million.
Statistics In terms of products, cherries ranked first in the export of fresh fruits and vegetables via air cargo at $6.502 million, followed by mushrooms at $4.328 million for 201,906 tons of various mushroom types such as morel and truffle, corresponding to about $21 per kilogram. Fig exports came in third with $2.387 million.
For the seven months in 2017 after the agreement was signed with the airline, a total of 6,215 tonnes of fresh fruits and vegetables, amounting to $10.52 million, were exported via air cargo. A total of 6,691 tonnes of fresh fruits and vegetables were exported via air cargo last year, bringing $18.06 million in revenue, Istanbul's Daily Sabah reported.
