Kermes Tarım has an important place among the agricultural produce manufacturers in Turkey. Agricultural produce manufacturer Kermes Tarım first started small scale production in the 1970s in order to sell and promote pine nuts unique to the Kozak region in the country and abroad. After the first generation’s success, later the second generation established Kermes Agricultural Products Industry & Foreign Trade Limited Company in 1989. With this establishment, it opened a pine nut processing factory.
Until 1996, agricultural produce manufacturer Kermes Tarım, which only dealt with the manufacturing, packaging, and sales of pine nuts, began serving to its customers by bringing the Kontinü Zeytin Yağı Factory into service at the end of 1996 in this sector, too. Thanks to its dynamic structure that has been changing and improving constantly, and with the wide product range it has, Kermes Tarım is one of the venerable dried fruit companies in the sector.
Current Facilities of Kermes Tarım
Agricultural produce manufacturer Kermes Tarım has managed to compete in world markets with its growing production and technology. Continuing its activities with its only pine nut processing factory until 2004, the company founded its second pine nut processing factory to increase production capacity. After this investment, the factory has gone into action in 2006. Thus, Kermes Tarım has doubled its production capacity per day. It has also a wide range of products from fig to hazelnuts, pistachios to crusted, pinenuts to walnuts, almonds to apricot kernels, and from raisin to olives/olive oil.
Continuously renewing itself and continuing to make technological investments that will provide a competitive advantage, the company seeks to produce new products considering the quality. Agricultural produce manufacturer Kermes Tarım, fully embracing the protection of nature and the trees that its staff produce, is an important agricultural and dried fruit company in terms of representing the Kozak region.
