It's an international organization. I would like to thank Izmir Metropolitan Municipality very much. Our President for bringing all the countries together and bringing the hard work and hard work of local producers here. Tunç SoyerThank you very much,” he said.

Our strength will multiply

I ferment for a long time in oak barrels. I founded the Furma brand. It was formed by the local people calling the date olive as furma. Terra Madre is a fair that brings the products of small producers directly to the consumer and aims to protect local products. It was a fair that was fit for its purpose and that also preserved sociological solidarity. We would like to thank Izmir Metropolitan Municipality," he said.

Awareness will increase with the fair
