Increased Local Production; Heading towards Leadership in Processing
To meet the increasing demand for our local seed, production has been increased by 40%. Our concentration hereby lies on high grade Elite Class and the multiplication from our mini-tuber developments.
Knowing that our local production is measured by high internal standards, we applied for the Global Gap Certification this year and got the certification without any issues. Thus, we are the first company in the Turkish seed potato sector to receive this official standard certification.
Our excellent industry varieties in combination with our service quality and human capital have catapulted us earlier than expected to a top position in the supply of seeds to the processing segment. We are on the way to be the number one player in this segment.
Our local variety NAHITA was sent to the Netherlands for its testing with the final aim to be part of the European PBR listing. Our shareholder AGRICO assists us in this endeavour. NAHITA is the first Turkish variety to go this new way.
Following the successful introduction of many new varieties last year, this year we have added another four. Babylon, Lugano, Bernina and Riviera. All of them have features which will meet the new challenges which lie ahead in the production of potatoes.
Our company’s aim is to be the most sought after employer in agriculture. This we see as part of our CSR strategy since this will set a benchmark for others in our industry and thus increase the respect for people. We wanted to be a great place to work and we achieved it. Our company is now Certified™ by Great Place to Work® We couldn't be more proud of our team... Our priority is our employees...
