Mr. Cahit Filik, Export Director of Pordonium, says that they are the only company to industrialize garlic in the world and states that their major target is to be a world brand. We conducted an interview with Mr. Filik. He outlined their operations as follows: Pordonium was established in April 2012 and fully concentrated on garlic production. As the only company in our country to industrialize garlic. Pordonium has a respectful place in the domestic market despite the fact that it was established as an export-oriented company. Stared with a monthly capacity of 60 tons to meet the market demand, Pordonium Inc. Has been continuing with 800 ton/month now. It started to supply peeled clove of garlic in 25 kg-packages but today it serves with powder, puree, sauce, pickles, clove and filed. We produce mainly garlic as sauce, powder, puree, pickles, clave and filet and also peeled onion, chopped onion, turnip juice, lemon sauce, apple and grape vinegars, dib roman, bitter sauce, soy sauce, ketchup, mayonnaise, etc. Our first rule is to transfer quality raw material from the field. Then comes processing in hygienic conditions and pasteurized in convenient glass jars. In addition, food products should be produced with appropriately equipped machinery which are operated at hygienic atmosphere by regularly checked up. We have been going through a corporation process supported with international certificates. We have been continuing with successful and experienced staff.

Right now, we are in Sial Paris in 2014 and hoping to enlarge our market. They are very lucrative to promote Turkish garlic. The aromatic and organic features of Turkish garlic put them to be more advantageous against other garlic types. That’s why customers and consumers prefer our garlic. We export to all parts of the world starting with neighboring countries. Our exports constitute 70% of our turnover and this percentage increases every day. We had already exported to Azerbajian, Kuwait, Romania, Sweden, Israel and North Cyprus Turkish Republic. This increases has placed us on leadership in the market. We would like to make our company a world brand. As the only company in the world to industrialize garlic we would like to succeed this both in the industrial and retail sectors. We want to come to the mind first when garlic is pronounced. I believe we can manage this.
