Akhisar Commodity Exchange Chairman Alper Alhat stated that despite the declining yield due to the climate, the highest quality olives of the last 10 years were produced in Akhisar.
VAT Discount Alhat said, “Our farmers took care of the trees so well, despite the adverse weather conditions all over the world, that perhaps the best quality olive of the last 10 years comes.” Pointing out that only 3 million tons of 100 million tons of vegetable oil produced in the world is olive oil, Alhat said, “If the VAT is reduced to 1 percent, the producer price and the consumer price will become similar, informal sales will decrease.”
