Mühlenchemie, ABP form joint venture in Turkey

July 8, 2013

In order to meet the increasing demands of Turkish bakeries producing bread and pastry goods, Mühlenchemie and its long-standing distribution partner ABP have created a joint venture. With the opening of a production plant of its own for flour improvers and flour fortification premixes in the Turkish town of Izmir, the joint venture intends to meet the challenges facing flour improvement in Turkey and its neighboring regions.

ABP has been the distribution partner of the flour treatment specialist Mühlenchemie since 1992. The two firms have now established the joint venture ABP Mühlenchemie Gıda Sanayi ve Ticaret Anonim Şirketi as an equal partnership.. In this context, the new company has set up a research and production facility of its own in order to be in a better position to meet the needs of the region’s milling industry. By doing so, it has cleared the way for sustainable growth in Turkey.

“Thanks to the new production plant and our joint venture with ABP, we are now able to serve the dynamic Turkish market for agricultural products and food more systematically and flexibly,” said Mühlenchemie’s Managing Director Lennart Kutschinski.
