Yörüksüt was founded as a family company by Ramazan Öz and his brothers in Mersin-Turkey in 1992; but the “milk passion” of the family goes back to the 1940s: The experience of animal husbandry, dairy cow farming and dairy farming, which was born into and inherited from grandfather and father, forms the basis of Yörüksüt. Yörüksüt, which has shown a rapid and stable growth on these solid foundations, is now taking the steps of being a large corporate company with firm steps. Yörüksüt produces 20 different dairy products with 120 different barcodes in three factories in Mersin, Erbil and Zaho. These products are delivered to customers in the markets where they are located, through highly developed distribution channels.
Some of the projects approved and supported by prestigious national and international organizations and reflecting Yörüksüt’s project making capacity are as follows:
2009: Milk Cooling Center Project: Supported by Çukurova Development Agency.
2010: Capacity Building and Technology Renewal Project: Supported by the Turkish Ministry of Agriculture.
2011: Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP-MRP): supported by KOSGEB (Small and Medium Enterprises Institution)
2011: NU-AGE Project : European Union joint research project supported by the European Union.
2012: Project of Establishing Labneh and Kashar Cheese Production Line: Supported by Çukurova Development Agency.
The “passion for milk” that led to the establishment of Yörüksüt, gave life to it and developed it, has been put into practice with slogans and principles such as “We add our love to our products” and “We never produce products that we cannot feed our children”, which reflect Yörüksüt’s principles and values in the best way, and This has never been compromised.
YÖRÜKSÜT’S CALL FOR COOPERATION
Yörüksüt has always had big dreams about foreign investment and partnerships: To offer synergistic production and service in its field of expertise, to surpass itself by establishing win-win systems, and to contribute to the development of that region or country; that is, to establish large-scale and integrated farms, feed mills and dairy products… And these organizations provide both healthy and high quality dairy products to people; as well as increasing their level of well-being…
While Yörüksüt is chasing his dreams on the one hand, he has always kept his feet on the ground in terms of current realities on the other hand; and has always made short, medium and long-term growth plans. All the dreams of Yörüksüt so far have been realized without any failure and by taking a firm step each time. And Yörüksüt knows and feels that somewhere deep inside; his larger dreams will also come true, for they are transcendent and holistic dreams.
In the light of the experiential awareness mentioned above, Yörüksüt has shown a sustainable growth and development step by step, without any haste: In line with his dreams, it started exporting dairy products to Iraq in 2007; It established its first factory in Iraq in Zaho in 2010 and the second in Erbil in 2013. Meanwhile, it has become one of the leading brands by establishing a widespread marketing and distribution network in Iraq.
Yörüksüt applied for IPARD (European Union Pre-Accession Assistance) project in October 2016: In this context, the new factory construction process has started in Mersin-Tarsus Organized Industrial Zone. Construction will start in the last quarter of 2016 and will be completed in about 9 months.
Yörüksüt conducts serious investment and partnership research in various countries such as Romania, Iran, Germany, and some of them have come to a conclusion in the short term.
Yörüksüt has a transcendent goal: to produce love, quality, health and wealth in the dairy industry in the world and to offer this to all stakeholders with the best service. And we strongly believe that; Trust, cooperation and synergy are the foundations of all successful partnerships.
