In this month’s Milling and Grain, we team up with our sister publication (and website) the International Milling Directory (IMD) to take a look at the milling industry in Turkey. The IMD is ideally placed for this task, due to the new search functions that have been added to the website, allowing for suppliers to be located using a world wide map! To see the way IMD makes it easy to find local as well as global suppliers visit: www.internationalmilling.com
Milling and Grain is becoming a must-read magazine for the Turkish milling industry. The market in Turkey is expanding and developing, as proved by the rapid expansion of Turkey’s premier flour milling event, IDMA that has truly emerged as an international exhibition of milling and baking technology. The event attracts the highest level of international participation with both regional and national organisations bringing millers and suppliers together every second year. Turkey’s exports of wheat are in a world-leading category in both volume and quantity. In the Central Anatolian region, Turkey is a strong player in today’s industry. Milling and Grain works closely with our International Editor, Professor Dr Hikmet Boyacioglu of Okan University in Istanbul. Professor Boyacioglu is a most respected and widely known expert in the flour milling and bakery sectors. Earning a BSc and MSc degrees in Food Engineering and Cereal Processing Engineering respectively from Ege University, Izmir and then a PhD in Cereal Science and Food and Nutrition from North Dakota University in the USA, he heads up our Turkish edition of Milling and Grain and works with our Milling and Grain team internationally as well as in Turkey. Working with Professor Boyacioglu acumen provides our new readers with a sure and solid link to the international world of milling. Here we highlight a selection of major players in the Turkish milling sector who have kindly responded to our request for information on their key products and their company’s background.
