About our Hazelnuts
We at ofi, through our subsidiary ofi Progida, are the leading supplier of natural and semi-finished hazelnut products grown by farmers in Turkey and Georgia. We offer a wide range of hazelnut kernel sizes and varieties to develop new ingredients for confectionery, baking, ice creams and other applications. These include natural, roasted, blanched, diced, and paste ingredients, carefully produced to retain flavor, texture and aroma. Our sourcing network means we can help farmers improve productivity and quality, as well as labor conditions. It also improves traceability.
Turkey accounts for more than 70% of the world’s annual production of hazelnuts as the climatic conditions in the Black Sea Coast area are ideal for growing hazelnuts. Strong relationships with farmers, intermediary traders and crackers span more than 100 years and are mutually beneficial. With many farm owners having second jobs in the towns, agronomy knowledge is sometimes limited, so our teams in both Turkey and Georgia work with almost 5,000 farmers under the Olam Livelihood Charter to help improve yields and quality, and therefore incomes.
We operate a state-of-the-art ingredients factory in Giresun and cracking facilities in various regions of 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. We manufacture to customer specifications. Product categories include natural extra selected hazelnut kernels and value-added processed products such as roasted hazelnut kernels, blanched hazelnut kernels, roasted and diced hazelnut kernels, and hazelnut paste. In the domestic snack food segment, we operate under the brand ‘Fındıkçı’. We are committed to food safety and quality. We have achieved relevant certifications such as BRC, IFS 5.0 (Higher Level), ISO 22000:2005, ISO 9001:2008 and GMP. We can also offer Organic, Kosher and Halal.
