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 from Türkiye

A third of the fruits and vegetables exported from Türkiye are canned products. According to 2019 data, it has taken its place in the world market with exports of $542 million. Approximately 25% of its total exports were to Iraq, while 50% were to Germany, the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, and Italy. The remaining exports are split between 141 countries. Prominent sectors in canned products are the tomato paste and pickle sectors.

The best of the storage methods have now enabled us to have a significant share in global trade. Türkiye is the 6th largest in the world with a 5.5% share in tomato paste exports valued at $161 million. We also export $85 million worth of cucumbers and corniche pickles to 104 countries.



In some of the plains of Türkiye, double-crop cultivation allows for the simultaneous growth of multiple crops in the same area of land during a single growing season. This results in a longer production period and more chances to harvest. Türkiye has the perfect opportunity to produce fruits and vegetables due to the fact that there is a multiplicity of agricultural production.

Almost all of the raw materials used in production and packaging are supplied from within the country.

Türkiye keeps track of the changes and developments in the world and continuously increases the quality of its products.

Due to its richness in raw materials and excess production, Türkiye can export products at more affordable prices than its competitors.

Thanks to Türkiye’s proximity to foreign markets and its strategic transport network, products are easily delivered to almost every part of the world.
