Licensed Warehouse Projects

We are responding to a sectoral need by building licensed warehouses, by which enterprises get an opportunity to market their product with a greater share whenever they prefer to.

Establishment of Giresun Hazelnut Licensed Warehouse and Spot Exchange Project

Turkey's first licensed hazelnut warehouse is established in Giresun with a capacity of 17-thousand tons. Hazelnut produced in Giresun, the first choice of local and European chocolate manufacturers, are now stored in steel warehouses with nitrogen gas as fresh as newly picked, without going bitter and generating aflatoxin. The complex also includes an accredited quality control, (authorised classifier) laboratory that conducts yield, humidity, hidden decaying and mould and sieve analyses in addition to facilities, where shelled hazelnuts are packed, cleaned, weighed and sampled. Around 160 SMEs are expected to benefit from the facility which increase their income and bring added value to the economy by minimising production loss.

Through the hazelnut spot exchange established as part of the Project, transactions take place with an electronic product document on computer/with a barcode environment, and sessions can be monitored, and which also provides price movements and indexes on which producers will be able to market their products. Building an electronic transaction platform at Hazelnut Commodity Exchange enables people who are included in the system to buy remotely. The producer is issued with a product document indicating the quality and amount of their product. This record enables getting loans from banks under favourable conditions without requiring any other collateral. Thus, there is no need to supply the market with an excessive amount of hazelnut. In other words, price drops are avoided.

Training and publicity activities for SMEs are also carried out under the project both regarding the licensed warehouse and the spot exchange.

Establishment of Cereals Exchange and Licensed Warehouse Project

Within the project, a licenced cereal warehouse equipped with modern technologies at a capacity of 90 thousand tons is established which also harbours laboratories to conduct product tests and analyses.These enable bulgur, flour  processing SMEs located in the city or region to find the relevant raw material throughout the year in a manner that is regular, safe and quality controlled. Seminars and training events are organised for more than 200 agricultural enterprises and SMEs on licenced warehouses.

When producers hand in their crop to the licenced warehouse, where these are stored in a healthy, insured and safe manner, they are issued with an internationally recognised product document. Enterprises can then use these certificates as a guarantee for the loan and funding they secure from banks. These can also be used as an investment tool.

Thanks to the cereal exchange, producers now can market their product through the exchange and sell it in according to their quality in a much easier way. Enterprises operating in the agriculture based commercial or industrial sectors are able to supply the product of their preferred type and quality at their desired amount with confidence and without investing in the construction of a costly warehouse.

The project enables high-quality production and reduces losses at the storing stage while boosting the income of producers, and thus increases the contribution to national economy.

Şanlıurfa Cotton Exchange and Licensed Warehouse Project

Although there is a demand for cotton throughout the year, it is generally sold during very short harvest periods, as there is a lack of appropriate storing conditions. Thus, the possible added-value drops, costs go up, product quality is compromised.

Turkey's largest licenced cotton warehouse with a capacity of 25 thousand tonnes of fibre cotton is built for the shared usage of cotton producers in the region. Farmers are able to store their cotton in a secure, healthy and insured manner. They can also acquire loans thanks to cotton product documents that they are issued. Cotton sales are extended to cover the whole year, so they are able to market their product at the best prices. They benefit from the competition among buyers as the standards of their products are identified and certified by modern laboratories.

SMEs that are processing cotton also safely supply a particular type and quality of fibre cotton, in desired quantity, in a very short time in the electronic environment thanks to healthy storing conditions.

This common-use facility also includes analysis and evaluation laboratories, farmer training centres and product exchange and auction halls. Cotton warehouse and stock exchange also enable registering the cotton trade, encouraging high quality production, minimising losses in storage and enhancing contribution to national economy.

Malatya Dried Apricot Licensed Warehouse and Exchange

Dry Apricot has a huge economic value for Malatya since it is produced in intensive quantities. However it is lack of high competitive advantage due to the insufficient number of cold storage facilities in the region, the inadequate storage conditions in the existing ones, the high energy costs of the cold storages and the price fluctuations resulting from supply and demand imbalances.
Thanks to the apricot licensed warehouse that will be established under this project, which is developed to increase the competitiveness of the region, the dried apricot will be stored in healthier conditions and presented to the market in longer periods.

Electricity will be supplied by solar energy. Products can be stored under appropriate conditions, in cold and freezing storages ,without losing their quality. Thus, if the producers make use of the licensed warehouse, they will be able to present their products to the market whenever they want, without having any lost.

The apricot producers will be able to sell their products at any time through the spot exchange which will be established within the scope of the project for purchase and sale operations. Price stability will be ensured since dry apricots can be marketedthrough several monthsrather than a certain and short period of time. Thus, both producers, sellers and consumers will be able to deal in a better market conditions.

As well as licensed warehouses and spot exchanges, producers, will also be able to benefit from machines and equipment for processing and packaging that will be offered for common use. The project will also carry out activities to increase cooperation among SMEs operating in the production and processing of apricots and to increase their competitiveness.

With the project, it is aimed to increase the income of the producers, to encourage quality in productionand to increase the amount of contribution to national economy by reducing the loss in storage.
