Strawberry exports to Russia quadruple due to World Cup

Tags: ,


Turkey’s strawberry exports to Russia reached $14 million in the January-May2018, compared with $3.5 million last year, as a result of rising demand related to the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Producers in Aydın’s Sultanhisar district, which produce about 50 percent of Turkey’s strawberry exports, are trying to meet the demand from Russia due to the FIFA World Cup 2018 event.

65,000 tons of strawberries are produced annually through greenhouse cultivation.

Normally the strawberry season would be drawing to a close, but now producers are striving to grow strawberries for export trucks bound for Russia. According to Aegean Exporters’ Association data, Turkey’s strawberry exports reached $21,650,000 globally in the first five months of the year.

Strawberry exports to Russia were $3.5 million in 2017, but increased to $14 million in the first five months of 2018. The next largest export markets were Romania, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.
