History
of Canned Tastes
The fruit and vegetable processing industry in Türkiye was established in the early 1900s and showed significant developments during the planned development period.
The sector mainly consists of pickles, temporary canned vegetables, and canned fruit and vegetable production. Canning production plants are concentrated in the Aegean and Marmara regions in number and capacity due to the raw materials needed by the industry being more abundant and higher in quality there.

Tastes to World Market
When we look at the fresh vegetable and fruit products sector frozen vegetables and fruits, canned vegetables and fruits, fruit juices and drinks, pastes, sauces, dried products, ready meals, and so on refer to a large number of products.
In short, the European market alone is about 10 billion jars in size. In 2019 Türkiye has reached exports of approximately 500 million units in different volumes of jars in its main product groups and derivatives. Türkiye has the opportunity and infrastructure to double this number and more. In the pasteurized business line, the packaging suppliers of the sector have the capacity and ability to produce these desired numbers. As a result, the targeted $4 billion in exports in the sector’s strategic plan is not seen as difficult to capture.
