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. Recently we have started sesame processing, a new plant in Black Sea Region for Tahini/Hulled sesame production.

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

Olam’s hazelnut and sesame operations are accredited to ISO, IFS, GMP, GLP, SEDEX, BRC and BIO standards. We also actively develop sustainability and traceability programs partnering with major industrial partners to improve our supply chain process.
