“When compared to the current situation in the world, we are at the very beginning of the road for packaged bread. However, we see that the share of packaged bread is increasing every year. Though the bread sold in the open market has a growth rate of 97 percent, it is lower than the level of packaged bread. The figures show that there is a very large potential market for packaged bread.”
According to the Survey of Euromonitor’s Packaged Food, we see that approximately 70 percent of bread sales in the bread market in the world, is unpackaged and 30 percent is of packaged bread. However, while the packaged bread market grew by 5 percent last year, less than 2 percent growth in unpackaged bread is in question. The unpackaged breads produced in Turkey constitute a significant portion of production. According to the calculations, measured market share of packaged bread is about 1.5 percent in the Open and packed bread market of 35 billion in the total.
When we add the share market cannot be measured but estimated at about 1.5 percent to this ratio, the total market share is stated to be 3 percent. For example, this rate is approximately 80 percent in England. Similarly; the packaged bread sales in North America, Australia, South America and Eastern Europe, is ahead of unpackaged bread sales.
Therefore, when compared with the current situation in the world, we’re at the very beginning of the road in the packaged bread. However, we see that the share of packaged bread is increasing every year. Though the bread sold in the open market has a growth rate of 97 percent, it is lower than the level of packaged bread. The figures show that there is a very large potential market for packaged bread.
As Doygun, we are the second largest brand in the packaged bread production sector in Turkey. In the first 3 months of 2015 we have already achieved the largest increase among all of our competitors in the market share through the innovations in line with the expectations of our consumers. In this framework, from January to March 2015 period, compared to the same period last year, we managed a record increase of 45 percent in our market share by rising to 23.4 percent from 16.2 percent in Istanbul.

In the second quarter of 2015, we maintained our market share with 23.5 percent rate. For the whole of 2015, we are aiming a market share of 25 percent.
