ONE FAMILY - ONE BIG IDEA
Yaban Food idea was born from Atilla Sevilmiş our Founder back in 90’s. His father was a teacher but also a dried fruit trader where he was raised and he was aware the true taste of real clean food. He joined a community of people trying to live a healthier life through organic vegetable farming in Kas Antalya when he was 40 years of age. Even he studied business in Istanbul his village background made him dominate organic farming practices in the centre.
Over time, the vision grew. The Centre wanted to create a space where everyone could have access to healthy, high quality, organic food, and where they could learn techniques of organic farming and see why the food they eat is so important. The Centre started to welcome guests from other countries.
The Centre exported it’s first products to USA and Germany in 1994. In 1996 we have started our first organic village project in Southeast Turkey for mulberries, sesame seeds and apricots historically the second project founded in Turkey. By believing in healthy soil, healthy plants, and healthy people. We have build a company not only supplies organic vegetables and fruits, but also a good reputation known by every single food factory in Turkey.
We tasted the food, we controlled the processing operations to ensure every ingredient we source meet the highest standards of organic, plant-based, and sustainable farming practices.
After supplying to organic farming industry for 10 years Atilla’s sons decided to build a facility to produce, control and export directly to organic food importers internationally. Eco tourism part of the idea is still serving guests with the YUVA Eco Holiday Centre name today.
The facility which two brothers are founded became a BRC, Kosher, Halal, Sedex and Organic Certified processing factory namely Izmir Organic in Aegean Free Zone Gaziemir IZMIR Turkey since 2008.
Today we are cooperating with over 300 organic farmers which we purchase not through traders or intermediaries but directly for years and process these products our own as one of the highly reputed Turkish organic dried fruit and vegetable supplier
