From Farm to Shelf: The Journey of Fresh and Flavorful Strawberries from Turkey

Keys 2 My Crops had the pleasure of visiting Yaltir TARIM in #Turkey, a renowned strawberry producer with over 40 years of experience. Let’s delve into the fascinating world of #strawberry farming with agriculture engineer Mr. Mustafa and biologist Ms. Duygu.
YALTIR Tarım excels in both strawberry production and seedling cultivation.
Their commitment to maintaining the cold-chain system is great. As soon as the strawberries arrive from the fields, they swiftly cool them to +1, +2 ℃ using their advanced cooling system. This #temperature is carefully maintained throughout the supply chain, from supermarkets to the final consumer. By doing so, they extend the shelf life of their strawberries to an impressive 10-14 days. In terms of #production, they cultivate approximately 300 hectares and process 11,000 – 12,000 metric tons of strawberries annually, all while upholding the highest standards of cold-chain conditions.
