We have focused on sustainable agriculture, organic farming, ecological concerns, HACCP, ISO, GAP auditing and certification, risk assessment, food safety, capacity building and training, seed and seedling, soil management, use of fertilizers, irrigation, pest and disease management, use of pesticides, harvesting and post-harvesting, whole supply chain process, traceability and quality assurance according to the EC standards. We have cooperated with the farmers, SMEs, Government organizations and public institutions. We have developed GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) and CSA (Climate Smart Agriculture) Capacity Building, Auditing, and Certification Programs and standards, and trained smallholder farmers, private sector representatives, SMEs and other stakeholders about farming in crops, fruits, vegetables, livestock, dairy and others to supply conventional and organic raw materials for infant food products in different provinces of Turkey. This quality assured value chain development process was successfully achieved and products were exported to Europe, MENA and CIS countries, according to the EC infant and baby food regulations and standards. This program was the first in the CEEMENA region (2002-2015 and contributed to the rural economic growth, welfare, gender equity and diversification, and conservation of the ecosystem and improvements in the greenhouse gas emissions.
