In these days when the 2020 hazelnut harvest starts, we would like to thank Mr. President, who announced the base price of the product before the harvest, on behalf of the whole sector, especially our producers.
As professional organizations in our city, we know very well what hazelnut means in our commercial life. One of the most important problems of our city and our region is the uncertainty of the price of this highly liquid product that shapes and shapes its economic life. Especially for the last two seasons, the base price has been announced by our President before the producer enters the garden, thanks to the announced price, our producers and the market have been relieved. In the 2020 season, the base price of the Levant quality 1 kg 50% yield shelled hazelnut was 22.00 TL, and the base price of Giresun quality shelled hazelnut was 22.50 TL. We can easily say that; The announced floor price satisfied our producers and other stakeholders of the sector. It is anticipated that this base price will add to the yield difference depending on the quality and the price will go up even more.
The base price has a market maker feature. By remaining faithful to its name, it refers to the “Base” and in this sense, it is open at the “Ceiling” point. We know with experience from past seasons that even though free-market prices fluctuate, they are under the market maker effect of the base price, which is in the form of “Karine (Trace)”.
Turkey, nuts and continues its leadership in the production, and trade will continue. Valuation of the products of our producers under the state guarantee will occur as an improvement in the production amount and quality of hazelnuts. Turkey, all the nuts can be produced and sold in domestic and foreign markets and also more easily be able to sell sufficient power. We have to produce more, sell at their value, and earn more. We are telling our producers that; Do not harvest your product ahead of time. There will be a loss of yield in your products that you harvest prematurely, which means a decrease in your income. Supply your product to the market as much as you need. The first owner of this product is our producers, the power, and the right to determine the main value of the product belongs to our producers. The floor price announced by the state as a result of the social and rule of law approach should be a flare for our producers to further appreciate their products. High quality; it means producing more and earning more. If a product earns a lot when it is first produced, if it makes the welfare level of its producer satisfactory, it will continue to earn every time it changes hands.
Instead of leaving the hazelnut industry, especially our producers, to the lap of uncertainty, we would like to thank our President, who announced the base price just in time, as an ointment instead of bleeding the wound and wish the new hazelnut season to be abundant, fruitful and beneficial.
