Agricultural Production Group

Although it is barely two years old, Tekfen Tarım has already achieved its organisational and investment targets. Thanks to its strong export focus, the company has also built up a solid customer portfolio and increased its export tonnage.

Having acquired a 90% stake in Alanar Meyve ve Gıda Üretim Pazarlama AŞ (Alanar Fruit), a company that grows and markets fruit, in 2018, Tekfen Tarım purchased the remaining shares in May 2019, thereby transforming this important countrywide producer and exporter of stone fruit into a wholly-owned subsidiary

Owing to the nature of the company’s operations, control of Hishtil-Toros Fidecilik Sanayii ve Ticaret AŞ (HTF), a former Toros Tarım subsidiary that produces regular and grafted seedlings, was transferred to Tekfen Tarım in August 2019.

Growing mainly cherries, Bursa black figs, pomegranates, apricots, Japanese plums, Trabzon dates, and chestnuts, Alanar Fruit is one of Turkey’s most important producers and exporters of fresh fruit.

Located in Adana, the Tekfen Tarım Agripark complex is one of only a very few high-tech agricultural R&D centres in Turkey. Exploiting Turkey’s rich biodiversity, the centre engages in the production of disease-free seeds and seedlings using the plant tissue-culture method. Awarded Ministry of Industry and Technology R&D-centre certification in 2018 Agripark breeds and exports more than 25 varieties of potato seed as well plum, cherry, and banana saplings. Devoting special attention to research into the country’s endemic plant species, Agripark is currently working on projects aimed at rehabilitating the propagation and cultivation of Anamur bananas, a variety that is unique to Turkey. Agripark is also involved in research projects concerning wheat, a staple foodstuff in Turkey and an essential input in the making of many export goods such as flour, pasta, biscuits, bulgur, and semolina.

Tekfen Tarım, carries out its seedling operations through Hishtil-Toros Fidecilik (HTF), one of the most important names in this business. Conducting its operations in high-tech greenhouses at two locations, with 50 decares in Antalya and 26 decares in Adana, HTF grows high-quality, healthy seedlings that are in compliance with recognised Good Seeds and Plants Practices (GSPP) standards.
