Toros Tarım ranks 56th in ISO 500

The 2021 results of İstanbul Chamber of Industry’s (ISO) hotly anticipated Turkey’s Top 500 Industrial Enterprises (ISO 500) research has been announced. With its successful performance in 2021, Turkey's largest fertilizer producer Toros Tarım has gone up one position among Turkey's Top 500 Industrial Enterprises and ranked 56th. The ISO 500 research is prepared based on the sales from production data. Toros Tarım was in the 57th place in 2020.

Agri-Industry Group CEO Hakan Göral, who made a remark regarding the subject, reminded that there fertilizer prices had a high increase in parallel with the increase in commodity prices in the world after the pandemic, and stated that this situation had a negative impact on fertilizer consumption in Turkey as well as in the rest of the world.

Göral said, “2021 has been an extraordinary year in many ways. We had a difficult year due to rising raw material and fertilizer prices and the volatility in exchange rates. Farmers in the world and in Turkey had challenges in accessing fertilizer. In addition to the contraction in the market, the ban on fertilizer exports also negatively affected our production capacity. Despite all these negativities, I find it very valuable that we went up one position in the ISO 500 list.”
