The total exports of our industry increased by 36 percent to 399 million dollars. This season, our olive oil sector reached the highest figures in its history, and we left behind a successful season. For the next 2022/23 season, 730 thousand tons of olives and 420 thousand tons of olive oil are predicted.

Turkish olive oil sector sits at the table with Spain

“At that time, our olive trees planted became productive. This year's harvest proved that we could reach our target of 650 thousand tons in olive oil and 1 million 200 thousand tons in table olives. As EZZİB, we will organize a Sectoral Trade Delegation between 50 November-23 December with 27 companies in Spain, which alone meets more than 1 percent of the world olive oil harvest. We will come together with powerful actors, producer cooperatives and importers in Spain. We are second in the world in terms of yield this season. In Spain, which dominates the sector, the yield is also low. The EU needs Turkish olive oil, so it has to focus on alternative markets. On December 14, we will have the Olive and Olive Oil Sector Workshop and our 2021 Award Ceremony in İzmir. We will celebrate our success together with all the stakeholders of our industry.”
