We operate a state-of-the-art ingredients processing facility in Giresun, as well as several cracking facilities in various regions along the Black Sea Coast. As an alternative supply to Turkey, we have established operations in Georgia, where our facility in Zugdidi is the most advanced in the country. Our Progida teams in both Turkey and Georgia work with almost 5,000 farmers under the Olam Livelihood Charter to help improve yields and quality on the fields, and subsequently incomes and lives off the fields.

When roasted, they are rubbed vigorously in a cloth while they are still hot to remove their thin brown skin.
