The Story of
Our story begins with the endless fertility of olives on the sea-scented lands of Tirilye. The Republic of Turkey was young and it was the perfect time to produce and work with devotion in many different fields. In that era, Mr. Ahmet, a notable person in Trilye, with his Sait along, decided to make a living by processing olive.
Together they opened their first olive processing shop and named their brand Emek, meaning effort in Turkish, from their effort full of abundance. After a while, the production line of the shop was transferred to the Emek factory which was established in Mudanya. At first, the Emek brand was known for its pressed olive oil and olive oil soap, and over time the product range extended to include sunflower and corn oil. Natural crops grown with the effort of Anatolian farmers are processed with care in the Emek factory.
Emek, an entirely local family-run business, is now managed by the fourth and fifth generations of the family members with the same enthusiasm and dedication that are the legacy inherited from the very first days.
