Established in 1956, Tekfen Group of Companies operates in three core business areas: Contracting, Agricultural-Industry (Agri-Industry) and Investment and Services. Tekfen Holding is the umbrella company for all of the firms and subsidiaries in the Tekfen Group.
Tekfen Tarımsal Araştırma, Üretim ve Pazarlama A.Ş. (Tekfen Agricultural Research, Production and Marketing, Inc.) is the umbrella company of the Tekfen Agricultural Production Group and was established in 2017 with the aim to bring a corporate perspective to agricultural production, which plays a vital role in securing a sustainable future. This move allows the Group to put its know-how gained during almost four decades in the field of agricultural inputs as well as its science-based approach and strong financial structure in the service of agricultural production.
With 76 agricultural engineers on its payroll who bring agriculture together with science and the most up-to-date technologies, Tekfen Agri exports fresh fruits to 80 different customers in 22 countries under the Alanar Fruit brand name, which Tekfen entirely acquired in May 2019. The company also uses its own seeds and saplings to grow bread wheat seeds, high-grade edible and seed potatoes, cherries, Bursa black figs, apricots, pomegranates, Japanese plums, nectarines, and bananas. Tekfen Agri is one of the few agricultural production companies in the world to produce such a diverse range of species. Tekfen Agri also contributes to raising productivity and quality in agricultural production by offering high-quality seeds, seedlings and saplings to farmers. As Turkey’s first and one of the few technological centres of agriculture, the Agripark complex located in Adana has been producing disease-free seeds and seedlings since 2004 through the tissue culture method and carries out crop seed breeding practices. The facility, which was registered as an R&D Centre in 2018, carries out studies that primarily focus on the improvement of Turkish agriculture benefiting from Anatolia’s rich endemic biodiversity
