Can we briefly recognize you and your company?
Hello, we are Aynur Gürel and Aydın Yalazı, and we work in S.S NO:994 Altınoluk Olive and Olive Oil Agricultural Sales Cooperative. Our company was established in 1988 and our current President is Mr. Ali Güngördü. In our cooperative, we have 752 partners and 526 of them are active partners. We have been working for 20 years. We used to work with 40 ton / day capacity until 2003. As a result of the investments we made after 2003, we are operating with a capacity of 240 tons / day as of 2018. We also have the pomace pressing plant, which we call secondary extraction.
How did you meet HAUS?
Previously, we had been using a different brand of machine. When grants were initiated by the state, a situation of making a choice for the purchase of new machinery was revealed. We wanted to buy a domestic machine. By the way, we saw that HAUS, with its name Hakkı Usta that time, was a company that moved with a growth target. As a result, we chose HAUS. At the same time, the other Tariş cooperatives also purchased HAUS machines. In fact, looking back, we can say that we grew up with HAUS. In our plant, we are currently operating with 4 HAUS machines. We have 3 pieces of olive pressing plants with a capacity of 80 ton/day and with a total capacity of 240 ton/ day, and 1 piece of pomace pressing plant with a capacity of 120 ton/day. We can easily say that our relationship with HAUS company is very close. We are working together on machine trials in new R&D studies.
We preferred HAUS for services and facilities, prices, machine operation and efficiency performance, bilateral warm relations. We can easily communicate with all kinds of communication as material and spiritual. New leads come to us and follow us on the spot and we refer voluntarily. Finally, is there anything you want to add? Market conditions in Turkey are unfortunately too heavy. When the manufacturer comes to us, he thinks that the available goods should be utilized best in Tariş. In return, when the consumer comes to us for purchasing, he demands to get the best product at the best price. It is one of our most important tasks to manage these two perceptions and offer the most efficient solution. In our opinion, we recommend that all our producers become members of the Tariş cooperatives. Because we do not take any informal action as structuring. We act in accordance with the most accurate production standards. All transactions are documented and recorded in detail. If we need a motto; If Tariş cooperatives run out, the future ends.
