Yavuz Gida

Yavuz Gida Sanayi ve Ticaret AŞ, or Yavuz Hazelnut Products, was founded in 1933 in Giresun, Turkey.

Every summer, tens of thousands of seasonal workers migrate to agriculture production areas across Turkey. A majority of these workers are from the southeastern Turkey and they travel as family groups moving from crop to crop for six to eight months each year. Often, the children work alongside their migrant parents, contributing to the household income, but at the expense of their personal development.
