YILDIZ HOLDING TO INCREASE SUPPORT FOR FARMERS AND CONTRACT FARMING

Aiming to increase support for contract farming throughout the country to facilitate easier access to safe food during COVID-19 pandemic, Yıldız Holding will purchase approximately 700 thousand tons of raw materials on a contractual land of 17,500 hectares by the end of 2020.

Stating that Yıldız Holding continues efforts to ensure sustainable access to safe food and to manage the supply chain end-to-end during the COVID-19 pandemic, Yıldız Holding CEO Mehmet Tütüncü said: “This pandemic has once again underlined the importance of supporting the food supply chain and local production. As Yıldız Holding, we have always adopted providing consumers with access to safe food as our major priority. Certainly, our greatest supporter in this process is local farmers. As a group that has been supporting Turkish farmers and contract farming for many years, we aim to purchase approximately 700 thousand tons of raw materials on a contractual land of 17,500 hectares by the end of 2020.

Giving information on the Holding’s local and contract farming practices, Mr. Tütüncü added: “We work especially on wheat and oat in cooperation with agricultural research institutes of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry. Wheat is a major raw material for both our country and our Holding. We have made rehabilitation works to achieve ideal wheat production for biscuits together with Konya Bahri Dağdaş International Agricultural Research Institute. We have also developed a highly productive, drought-tolerant type of wheat that we name Ali Ağa. With such efforts, we contribute to more than 500 thousand families, including farmers, transporters, handling and warehousing workers, cooperatives, and associations.”
