People's Grocery Store, where 24 producer cooperatives offer approximately 400 products for sale, will also ensure that employees have access to healthy and affordable food.

Production increases with 25 million purchases per year

The application that made the employee smile, became a lifeline for the producer who cultivates İzmir's soil loop by thread. Thanks to the application, 7 thousand personnel will shop from People's Grocery for over 25 million liras per year.

“We also support producer cooperatives”

Burak Alp Ersen, the General Manager of İZELMAN, a subsidiary of İzmir Metropolitan Municipality, said, “We signed our collective bargaining agreement for the years 2021 and 2022 with the DİSK Genel İş Union. Pursuant to the contract, we agreed that the food aid, which was 250 TL per year in the previous contract, will be 3 TL this year. We agreed on the use of the People's Grocery in this food aid. Therefore, our personnel will have access to safe, healthy, economical and completely produced products by producer cooperatives. Thus, we both bring our staff together with healthy food and support producer cooperatives.”

We are happy with the quality and affordable

İZELMAN employee Çiğdem Hapçı, who shopped at People's Grocery with food checks, said, “I found the application very good because it is healthy products. I think the prices are reasonable compared to outside. I would like to thank our President Tunç Soyer for providing us with this opportunity.” Serhat Arda said, “A good Collective Bargaining Agreement was made. Accordingly, we started shopping at the People's Grocery store as of yesterday. I find this application timely and beautiful. Meeting with healthy products also motivated us.”

Workers met on common ground

Yekta Saydam, Manager of the People's Grocery Markets, said, “There is a great interest and demand from the İZELMAN staff. The shopping made by the staff is very important to support the small producer and local production. This study enabled both the cooperatives and our fellow workers to meet on a common ground. In this way, cooperative products will be produced more and contribute to the development of agriculture. In addition, our colleagues will be able to consume natural, healthy and reliable foods at their tables.
