Raising skill levels in Turkish farming

A €50 million loan to Anadolu Etap will help the Turkish fruit juice and fresh fruit producer expand its business while also raising skill levels in the Turkish farming industry, promoting rural development and fostering gender equality.

The EBRD loan will finance investments in new fruit farms, sophisticated machinery and packing facilities. A technical assistance programme will support the company’s efforts to secure a sustainable supply of high-quality raw materials.

This will feature training opportunities with a special focus on increasing the skills of female farmers. As a condition of the financing, Anadolu Etap will also align its corporate governance standards with international best practice.
