The biggest reason why it has difficulties in competing with rival countries such as Italy and Greece is the cost difference against our country.The return support provided to the exporter in our country is very low.When the support given in dollars until 2013 and the support given in TL, it can be clearly seen that the current export returns are very low. In 2013, 650 dollars / ton support was given for olive oil exports with a registered Turkish brand and the phrase ‘Made in Turkey’ in packages of 0-1 kg (including 1 kg), while today this amount is around 600 TL / ton, which is approximately 200 dollars.
