Özet

Honey and other apicultural products have made a considerable progress in both production levels and value added in Turkey. We evaluated a clustering formation for the honey and apicultural products sector in the Black Sea Region of Turkey to develop a more efficient market framework. In our cluster, there is one center and three poles of the cluster: Beekeepers and exchange market in the center, supply providers, service providers and institutional support are in the poles. The central component of the cluster is the small family enterprises, which constitutes a significant part of the producers in the Black Sea Region. The other central part of the cluster; exchange market is expected to promote efficient price formation. The stakeholders of the supply providers are the input providers and food processing and by-product companies. The second pole of the cluster is composed of financial institutions and services, marketing services and tourism sector. Institutional support mechanisms are the last pole of the cluster and composed of public and private support.
