Borsoy Gıda Endüstrisi has been operating in the area of bakery since 1989, and has continued its services in ready-made bread mixes and specialty bakery products from İzmir to the hotels, patisseries and bakeries in Turkey and abroad with Farmhaus products since 2001.

The primary target audience of Farmhaus is the bakeries and businesses looking to produce bakery products, boutique and quality bread, and in the last one year, we have offered home-type products and products for individual consumers.

Regarding the bread industry which has been changing and improving constantly for years, what is the interest level for bread varieties and what is your future expectation in this issue? Particularly in the last two or three years, there is an increased demand which goes parallel to the increased interest in healthy diets and functional food products. The fitness bread mix and buckwheat bread which we have developed for people who work out and who want to stay in shape are the top selling products in recent days.

What is the share of Borsoy Gıda in bread mixes market? Where are you planning to see yourself in this market? Farmhaus, entering its 17th year in the industry of bakery flour mixes, which can be considered as quite new for our country, plans to increase its market share in the future with an increasing momentum as one of the important companies in the sector with its innovative and pioneering approach.

Do you have any export activity or any plan for this? Could you share with us if you have? Our company, which introduces its products at exhibitions abroad, has contributed to national exports by sending its products abroad for about 6 years, and it is increasing its exports every year.

Could you give us information about the other activities and products of your company? At Farmhaus, we aim to focus only on bakery products, producing the best, top quality boutique products and specializing in this field.

How can the customers find the products Borsoy Gıda produces? Our company reaches individual consumers at national supermarkets.

Our company, which has increased its production capacity in response to the rapid increase in interest in variety bread in our country, will further improve the quality with the new machine park, which will undertake production without a touch of hand on the products, to be launched next month. Our products are manufactured with ISO2200 quality assurance system and delivered to customers with unconditional customer satisfaction.

Is there any bread mix that you will launch soon or any other product? We believe the prebiotic bread mix, which we still work on, will be one of the top selling products in the future.

Finally, what would you like to add about Turkish bread and bakery products market or your companies’ targets? To help the development of the bread market in Turkey, we should be sensitive on the issue of education. Baking schools should be opened to train young bakers and to help them like their profession. Personally, I give lectures at schools and associations that offer baking lessons, and I try to support and participate as a speaker at panels about baking. I see a great potential in our country, which is the world leader in per capita consumption of bread, and I look to the future with great hope.
