Turkiye: January record in exports from the agricultural sector

The agricultural sector achieved the highest January export of all time with $2 billion 875 million.

The agricultural sector, which broke export records in 2022, started this year with a rise.

Especially after the start of the Russia-Ukraine war, Turkiye continued its agricultural exports at full speed, despite geopolitical risks, concerns about supply, and difficulty in accessing food globally.

Despite the protectionist policies of the countries, the Turkish agricultural sector continued its effective foreign trade policy. Trade delegations organized to countries were also among the leading factors that enabled Turkiye to break records in foreign sales.

Demand for agricultural products continues to break records.

Turkiye’s agricultural sector achieved the highest January export of all time with $2 billion 875 million. Agricultural exports, which increased by 12.8% in January compared to the same period of the previous year, took a 14.8% share from Turkiye’s total export sales.
