Sustainable Family Farming Model Turkey – Phase 2

Turkey

Context

Social & business context

Agriculture is declining in Turkey. The dairy sector suffers from a bad reputation and farmers earn very low incomes. 
Danone Turkey wishes to secure its milk sourcing and improve milk quality and volumes in order to increase its  sales.

Solution
With the support of the Danone Ecosystem Fund, Danone Turkey and its local partner, the Yada Foundation, co-created the  “Sustainable Model Family Farming Turkey” project to promote a sustainable and replicable model for individual farmers grouped in empowered organizations. To achieve this, and to support producers in developing their activity, the project invests in central milking parlors (CMP) and provides training on sustainable farming practices and management. 

Social & business impacts
This project promotes family farming by increasing farmers’ incomes. The training offered will also professionalize the sector and improve the image of dairy farmers.
Danone Tukey is securing its milk supply in Turkey. This project strengthened its ties with local farmers and contributes to the development of Danone’s reputation.
The project supports sustainable agriculture and local development (milk shed) and aims to encourage a new generation to take up dairy farming.
