In Turkey, especially after 2002, with the support of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock, 90 million olive trees have grown to 177 million. With the start of yielding olive trees in our country in recent years, Turkey aims to produce 650 thousand tons of olive oil and 1 million 200 thousand tons of table olives for 2023 years. With these figures, Turkey aims to become world’s second in olive oil production after Spain and world leader in table olive exports. In the province of Salihli in Manisa recently, the olive tree planting reached a considerable level parallel to the whole country.
We have decided to invest in this sector in order to make olive and olive oil production in Salihli region become an added value with the aim of producing a strong export market in addition to a strong domestic market, in return for the farmers’s hopes in these trees.
At Acar Tarım, we have started to produce olive and olive oil since 2015, which has been operating in Salihli since 2006. We produce for the brands "Zertin", "Salihli" and "YMF" in our factory which we have established with 4000 square meters indoor area within the area of approximately 40 thousand square meters with latest technology.
We have Mustafa Acar and Fatih Mürşit Acar as members of the Board of Directors of Acar Agriculture and Petroleum Products, Olive Food Products, Transportation, Animal Husbandry, Tourism, Travel Agency Industry Trade Limited Company. At Acar Agriculture, we operate in four areas: tourism, breeding (buying and selling), organic agriculture and olive / olive oil.
In recent years, after the olives are planted around Salihli and its surroundings, olive farming in the province started to become a big sector. In Salihli, where large plantings were located, necessary steps were not taken to process the olives. We at Acar Tarım, have stepped in to make this shortfall in our country. In 2006, we increased the capacity of our facilities built on an area of 500 square meters. We started to pack olive and olive oil in a variety of weights in our factory, which we have built on 2 thousand and then 4 thousand square meters area, covering olive harvest, production and exports.
