Market restructuring and public incentives: the Turkish case of fresh produce marketing cooperatives

Abstract : Faced to the fast restructuring agrofood markets in Turkey, the Turkish State set up new institutional devices to support agricultural marketing cooperatives. This article analyses the dynamics of these public incentives towards producers’ organizations on the restructuration of the Turkish fresh fruit and vegetable market. The wholesale market law enacted 1995 established brokers on wholesale market halls who collected an atomized supply and guarantee the access of small producers to large scale markets. However, the attempt to promote cooperatives is less successful. Indeed, lack of funding and skill shortage weaken a great number of them. Therefore, hall brokers enjoy a favorable position as intermediaries in the channel. In this context, we show how the evolving regulation of public authorities stimulates the dynamics of collective marketing. Because it aims at increasing efficiency, the state supports new forms of market-oriented cooperatives and progressively turns away from its defensive strategy, that is protecting small producers. We investigate the consequences of this evolution and conclude on the ambiguous effects of this intervention.
