As Pakun, Turkey’s deep-rooted, innovative, local and national flour brand, we started our business life with the first flour mill established in Samsun Bafra in 1973. We are proud to celebrate our 50th anniversary in the industry today under the leadership of our Chairman of the Board and our father, Niyazi Durgun. As Pakun, we accelerated our activities in Çorlu, Tekirdağ by incorporating Başak Gıda as the second production facility as of 2017, in addition to our headquarters in Samsun Bafra.
We are a brand that produces and exports at world standards with our 328 thousand tons of annual wheat crushing capacity in our factories in Bafra and Çorlu. We will proudly fly our flag in the world flour industry by increasing our annual wheat crushing capacity to 550 thousand tons with our third facility, which will come into operation at the end of 2023.
As Pakun, we offer high quality wheat flour to both domestic and world markets by importing quality wheat that we carefully select from international markets, especially from Russia and Ukraine.
With our wide product range, we supply high quality wheat flour to the industrial and retail markets of more than 40 countries in 3 continents.
Our exports, which were 49 thousand tons in 2021, reached 92 thousand tons in 2022. We achieved a significant success with an increase of 88 percent in exports. Our aim is to exceed these figures in 2023 and carry our flag to a higher level in the world flour industry.
