Twin towns of Giresun and Italy’s Alba to fight hazelnut disease with help of universiti­es

Dünya Executive - - BUSINESS -

The Italian city of Alba, where

Ferrero was establishe­d, is a nut producer, much like the Turkish town of Giresun. Now the communitie­s have become twin towns to promote hazelnuts, said Marsili. “The most important disease for hazelnuts is a disease called ‘insinerati­on,’ which is being fought against all over the world. We are working to develop an initiative involving universiti­es with the Turkish side. The two cities will work in cooperatio­n to fight against this disease,” he said.
