2013 data for the top 500 list of Istanbul Chamber of Commerce was recently disclosed. One of the successful companies in the list comes from Bolu province. Aiming about TRL 890 million sales in 2014, Erpilic, a poultry company, experienced a remarkable growth by having higher quality, halal certificate and dry plucking system. While informing about the white meat sector in general, Mustafa Ericek, deputy general manager of the company, said, “In the first quarter of 2013 production data in poultry industry was highly satisfactory. In the third and fourth quarters sales were down, though Erpilic was no affected. We invested 13.2 million dollars in 2013, and we began to apply dry plucking system as the first in Turkey and the third company in the world. Thanks to the advantages of this system we improved our hygiene and got halal food certificate. İn line with this development, our quality, sales and profitability has improved. We will keep seeking new investment opportunities for capacity expansion.”
