About Ülker Bisküvi
Ülker Bisküvi launched its operations 70 years ago in a small workshop in Eminönü, Istanbul, with only six or seven boilers, a small oven and three employees. Yet it is now the flagship of Yıldız Holding by both sales volume and profitability.
At its plants in Istanbul, Ülker Bisküvi produces chocolate (Topkapı), chocolate and chocolate-coated biscuits (Silivri), biscuits (Gebze), and cakes (Esenyurt). Ülker Bisküvi also produces biscuits at its Ankara plant, biscuits, cakes, crackers and chocolate at its Karaman plant, biscuits and cakes in Egypt as well as biscuits, chocolate, and cakes in Saudi Arabia. As a global food giant serving the national and international markets with its 330 kinds of biscuits and crackers, Ülker Bisküvi is the undisputable leader of the industry. In 1996, Ülker Bisküvi received International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9002 certification for quality standards in production, and in 2001 was awarded by Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) certification for quality standards in food safety. The company consolidated its success in quality control by receiving the top “A” rating from the BRC Global Standards in 2002, a leading Europe-based safety and quality certification firm.
As Turkey’s largest food company, Ülker recognized 2.9 billion TL in sales revenue in 2014. During this period, Ülker's net profit distributable to the parent company increased to 212 million TL from 189 million TL from the same period last year. Ülker was able to maintain its strong financial structure with such results.See more
