Duru Gıda Chairman of the Board Emin Duru: “Pulses should be given more place on the table for sustainable food”
Duru Gıda Chairman Emin Duru said that pulse products will shape the future of the food sector.
“Considering the threat of global warming and climate change, pulses are of great importance for sustainable food systems. We continue our efforts to raise awareness on this issue,” said Duru, “We keep on working with a production approach that combines traditional methods with modern methods for the most natural and delicious results. In this context, we have the world’s largest bulghur production line.”
“We have made many technological investments in order to closely monitor every stage of the product from seed to harvest, from packaging to the table. We do all our work to ensure that the crop reaches the consumer in its most natural and nutritious form. We know that pulses make great contributions to the environment and human health. Therefore, pulses are the world of the future. We continue our work by assuming a great responsibility to raise awareness on this issue,” he added.
“In this sense, our most important agenda is Ahmet wheat, our ancestor seed development project. We have initiated a project in order to bring Ahmet wheat, which is Türkiye’s 2 thousand years old domestic wheat and will make significant contributions to our country’s agricultural exports, back into the agricultural industry. Within the scope of the project we are carrying out jointly with Karamanoğlu Mehmetbey University, we aim to make wheat, which is mainly cultivated in barren lands in Türkiye, more productive,” he explained.
Pointing out that with this project, they believe that they will make a great contribution to increasing the productivity of wheat production in Türkiye, he concluded, “In all our operations, we invest in renewable energy projects while adhering to a sustainable production approach that respects nature. As the leading brand in the sector, we continue to use our experience and know-how to provide the highest benefit to our economy.”
