Pursuant to comprehensive field studies, Doğan Holding concluded that dairy farming and livestock breeding was the best fit for the region and established Doğan Organik Ürünler Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. in 2002. Setting out to become the Turkish leader in organic milk production and livestock breeding, Doğan Organik Ürünler strives to transform Kelkit and its environs into a well-known hub for this industry.
In 2005, the Company received an organic farming certificate granted by an audit and certification firm accredited by the European Union. Since then, the Company came close to quadrupling its organic milk production capacity to approximately 10,000 tons. The Company launched the contract farming project in Kelkit in 2006; Doğan Organik Ürünler empowered the regional population to become involved in organic production by training them in such matters as organic feed crops, milking, sheltering systems and fertilizer management and by retrofitting livestock shelters and barns. During the project, the Company helped organize all stages from the production and processing of raw milk to marketing.
During the previous year, the Company started cooperating with the Mlife brand of Migros, a supermarket chain very popular among the upper-middle class Turkish consumers (AB Group). In 2012, the Company expanded its unique brand production, sales and distribution operations by cooperating with the Fine Life brand of Metro Gross Market and Karamiş Grups Siryana. Within Turkeys largest nationwide supermarket chains, Doğan Organik Ürünler controls 100% of the original brand organic milk market.
Today, Doğan Organik Ürünler is the only raw material supplier of the organic milk sold in the Turkish market. The Companys facilities account for 85% of the total organic raw milk produced in the country. With an annual production capacity of 10,000 tons, the Company also has one of the largest plants in Europe. Doğan Organik Ürünler sticks to the principle of sustainability in all of its operations. The Company also organizes training activities to educate local farmers about organic agriculture and livestock-breeding. A founding member of the Association of Organic Product Producers, the Company shares its sector-specific experience and know-how with regard to symposia and conferences.
Doğan Organik Ürünlers rapid development and achievements are confirmed with various awards. In 2005, Doğan Organik was named one of the top ten socially responsible investments in Europe by the European Union Directorate of Business Concerns. In 2006, Doğan Organik was honored with the Best Agricultural Investment award by the World Food Organization (FAO) on World Food Day.
In 2012, Doğan Organik Ürünler earned the Corporate Citizenship award at the CSS Solutions Marketplace event organized by Turkish Association of Corporate Social Responsibility (TKSSD). The Company also received the Jurys Second Prize granted by a Selection Committee made up of experts from the national partners of CSR Europe, UNDP and international CSS specialists; these projects earned the right to participate in the marketplace with their sustainable agricultural growth projects.
