Agrifood Sector Studies Turkey: Restructuring of agrifood chains in Turkey - The produce sector (Part A - meso study)
This report examines the supply chain restructuring and trends in the food market in Turkey, in particular in the fresh produce sector, to reveal the driving factors behind this restructuring (demand side, supply side, policies, and institutions) and the threats (opportunities) to (for) the exclusion (inclusion) of small scale farmers in modern marketing channels. Using the tomato market as a case study, the report analyses the restructuring of the fresh produce markets from three dimensions. The drivers that cause the exclusion/inclusion of small farmers in the restructured fresh produce market are also explored. The actual inclusion/exclusion of small farmers in the restructured fresh produce market is also evaluated.
This publication forms part of the Regoverning Markets project.
The Regoverning Markets project focused on the modernisation of agrifood markets in emerging economies, and implications for small-scale producers. The goal was to secure more equitable producer and trade benefits in response to those changes. It was a multi-partner collaborative research programme made up of a consortium of some 20 research organisations and funding agencies.
