Tolga Kankaya, General Manager of Elma Tarim
- The family enterprise Elma Tarim is among the top five Turkish companies involved in the cultivation of fruit tree seedlings. We are breeding apples, pears, peaches, nectarines, walnuts, apricots and sweet cherries. Every year we supply about a million fruit tree saplings. Up to 80% of our saplings are exported to Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and other Turkic countries. We also offer a turnkey orchard service, which includes the preparation of a specific area for laying out an orchard, setting up an irrigation system and other necessary equipment, supplying seedlings, pruning trees and a full range of services for the maintenance and maintenance of an orchard.
At the exhibition we met with regular customers from Azerbaijan. Using a visit to the country, we visit the orchards that were previously arranged here. We aim to build relationships with new potential customers. Most of all we are interested in farmers who wish to establish their own orchards in Azerbaijan and other Turkic countries, to discuss issues affecting our areas of activity.
The exhibition is very successful, and, given the extremely favourable conditions for the development of agriculture in Azerbaijan, we expect that it will expand even more in the near future.
