The Sunar Grup, whose value in Turkey’s agriculture-based industry and food sector is rising, exports with its own brand to more than 100 countries on 5 continents with almost half a century of experience, 800 employees, and a wide range of products. The Sunar Grup aims to be one of Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa’s largest agriculture-based industrial groups thanks to its high capacity, wide accumulation of knowledge, and experience.
The foundation of the Sunar Grup was laid in the early 1970s with the level-headed and courageous investments that its founder Nuri ÇOMU made in the field of cotton and paddy. Even if the cotton and paddy factory that was found in 1974 isn’t still around today because of problems encountered in the cotton agriculture in Çukurova, the group’s oldest company Sunar Özlem was founded in Osmaniye in 1976 as a flour factory. The companies Sunar Yem, which was added to the Sunar Özlem organization in 1997, Sunar Mısır, which was founded in Adana in 1985, NÇS and Elita Gıda, which were established in 2006, and Sunar Pazarlama, which was founded in 2010, joined the group’s organization.
The Sunar Grup operates with 5 different companies in the field of agriculture-based industry. Of the companies of the group, Sunar Mısır produces and sells starch and starch-based products, Elita Gıda produces and sells oils for retail and Horeca, Sunar Özlem produces and sells flour and feed, and NÇS produces and sells fresh fruit. The external commercial activities of the Sunar Grup companies are maintained by the Sunar Pazarlama company.
Sunar, which is the group of entirely Turkish capital, exports to over 100 countries and is taking important steps to be a regional power. It carries out its work with strong technological infrastructure that it formed in this context, modern production systems, and quality products with the understanding of “high quality, stability, and service,” in line with being a global company. A company of the group Sunar Mısır is producer of Sorbitol and Maltitol, which are low-calorie natural sweeteners. Sunar Mısır at the same time has an important share of Turkey’s corn starch and glucose exports. Another company of the group Elita Gıda is in the premier position of Turkey’s corn oil exports.
The Sunar Grup is rising to prominence compared to its competitors with three main strong suits. The first of these strong suits is the businesses included in the group being in a supplementary character to each other. This situation maximizes the strength of efficiency and prosperity of the group’s companies. Sunar is the only integrated facility in Turkey that harbors all stages of production from the seed to the table in its organization and that can produce corn oil from corn, package it, and put it on the market. The other important strong suit is the importance that the Sunar Grup gives to Research and Development activities. The constant development of new products observing the needs of customers and the market and preserving the current standards of products are among the basic working principles of the Research-Development department. The Sunar Grup also continuously plans and implements investment and improvement studies with the awareness that information technologies and new production technologies are highly influential on efficiency and quality.
The Sunar Grup is proud to be the growing force of growing Turkey.
