Our company was founded in May 2013, by Prof. Dr.Dilek Boyacıoğlu, an expert in the manufacturing of food products and Aslı Elif Tanuğur who has many years of experience in quality control, R&D, project development and execution areas in the bee products industry as well as hands-on sector experience in this industry. With his many years of experience in the bee products industry and the projects he realized, our team member Taylan Samanci, an agricultural engineer, is a renowned expert in his field, who also manages the company’s production functions based on the “Contracted Bee Products Manufacturing Model”.
Our company was founded as Part of KOSGEB in ITU Maslak campus with the R&D project titled “Categorization of Propolis Based on its Sensory, Biological and Chemical Properties and Development of Processing Methods To Make Propolis Suitable for Human Consumption” and continues to carry out activities and functions related to this project as well. The purpose of the project is to develop special processes unique to propolis production in order to make it suitable for human consumption. A contracted production model was developed that allows Beekeepers and Beekeepers’ Associations to produce propolis under controlled conditions on behalf of our company. With this model, we plan to carry out production activities in different regions with vegetation appropriate for propolis at the trial level. Propolis obtained will be categorized based on its biological, sensory and chemical properties to determine processing techniques that are capable of preserving its biological activity and properties at the maximum level and resulting in a product that is suitable for human consumption. Another benefit of the project is that it will allow us to determine the technical specifications of the propolis that is unique to our country.
