Turkey

Olam began operating in Turkey in 2005, directly marketing cotton and sesame before commencing the export of pasta products to West Africa in 2009.

In late 2011 we acquired 100% of Progida Group, a leading Hazelnut exporter in Turkey. Olam has attained a leadership position in Turkey, carrying inventories to meet the just-in-time requirements of our customers.

Our 2 corporate offices are in Istanbul and Mersin, with hazelnut cracking factories located at Ordu and Sakarya. The hazelnut processing plant is in the Piraziz/Giresun area at the heart of the hazelnut growing region. Our sesame plant is in Samsun, close to the biggest port of Black Sea. Across the country, over 1,000 employees manage our processing and supply chain activities from origination to logistics, marketing and distribution, enabling us to efficiently create value and manage risks for our customers.

Olam Progida’s hazelnut processing plant conforms to the world’s highest food safety and quality standards. Hazelnuts are cracked, sorted and then processed using the most advanced technologies to keep the nutritional value intact. Roasting is done on state-of-art variable capacity lines capable of processing various grades of hazelnuts with consistent flavour, aroma and texture. Product customisation is our key strength and we have the capability to meet customer specific requirements.  

Providing sustainable food safety and high-quality standards in the business strategy is the priority of Olam Progida. With the international standards BRC, IFS, FSSC 22000, ISO 9001, Kosher and Halal, food safety, high quality and production are guaranteed. In addition, Olam Progıda is continuously audited by various food giants, customers and potential customers, and its management systems are approved. 

Our strong sustainability programme takes actions to support farmers and seasonal workers, and to improve conditions in the hazelnut supply chain. This is in line with our commitment to develop supply chains that respect people and human rights, and where no children or adults are subject to illegal, forced or abusive labour practices. Traceability is key in achieving our sustainability goals Olam Progida are pleased to provide fully traceable hazelnuts to customers all over the world."
