"In Türkiye, the demand is already high, and we are eager to enter the Netherlands with our natural plant protection products," says Hande Gökbakan, Export & Marketing Manager at Global Agrolian. The aim of the Turkish company, founded in 1989, is to protect plants organically by contributing to the agricultural sector.
"Global Agrolian is the one-stop-shop you need as a grower to grow and protect your flowers, herbs, or fruits in the best possible way. We offer numerous plant protection alternatives, from technical active ingredients to specific phrases for direct application. Insecticide, fungicide, nematicide, and bactericide are some of your options in this area. The products are mainly based on herbal soaps, essential oils, and plant extracts." The main advantage of the product is that it is completely natural, he stresses.
They have been supplying their products in Türkiye for many years and see the demand increasing. Now, they are ready to export their product. "Our target is the Netherlands among the European countries," Gökbakans says. "We have certain protection plant products for cut flower production, and we would like to bring it to a country with a high cut flower yield and where sustainability is highly valued, such as the Netherlands."
To expand their market in the Netherlands and Europe, they are now also looking for a distributor as an individual or institution.
