Güngör Family Olive Production and Trade : A Success Story
As Güngör Family, we, continuing a deep-rooted olive tradition in Orhangazi, have embarked on an adventure of innovation and quality-oriented growth, starting from a small-scale trade in the beginning.
As our family rooted in Narlıca town of Orhangazi district of Bursa, we started our adventure with olive production in the early 1990s and soon turned it into olive trade.
As a family that initially started with a small olive trade, with the support of our olive farmers and the encouragement of our loyal customers, we expanded our business by launching a factory in Gemlik in 2003, producing packaging and packaging. 000 tons of olive storage capacity and 20 tons of olive packaging capacity per day, we focused on green olive varieties and sliced olive groups. In the same year, we acquired Pınar Pickles and Olives, which has been operating in the pickle sector for 40 years in the famous Gedelek village of Orhangazi, and created an infrastructure that can respond to customer demands more effectively by combining olive and pickle varieties.
Since olives and pickles are products that are harvested once a year, we attach great importance to the storage of olives and pickles in appropriate conditions during harvest periods. With this in mind, our Gemiç integrated factory, the foundations of which were laid in 2014 and became operational in 2016, has a product storage capacity of 15,000 tons, and we have reached a daily product packaging capacity of 100 tons with the latest technology packaging production lines.
With a total storage capacity of 21,000 tons of olives and 6,000 tons of fermented pickles, all our factories not only deliver our products to many markets and retail outlets in 81 provinces of Turkey, but also export our products to more than 20 countries, especially in the Middle East, Turkic Republics, Russia and Europe.
As a company, we set our development and quality targets for olives by acting on the principle of "trouble shows the way" as advised by the Prophet Mevlana. By reducing the salt content of our black olives by 25%-30% compared to the old rates, we offered our less salty, dried black olives to our customers. We reaped the fruits of the R&D studies we started in 2016 for the production of pepper pimento paste used in the production of green olives with pepper in our Akhisar plant, and we brought innovation to the sector by producing the first pepper paste in Turkey.
With these innovative approaches, we both contribute to our country's imports and lead the sector by offering an economical production option to other peppered green olive producers. We aim to increase customer satisfaction by enabling our consumers to prefer olives produced under more hygienic conditions.
As Güngör Family, we will continue our R&D and studies in the future in order to continuously increase and improve our quality.
