Producing vegetable oil as one of the oldest and long-established industrial enterprises of Turkey since 1962, Altınyağ Combine, Inc. has strengthened its production and financing structure with an investment of TRY 53 million and raised its goals to become a global player. Since 2012, the most significant milestones of its history, Altınyağ halted the packed oil production for end-user, focusing on production of raw oil, where the global market is more profitable and less competitive. It has also started production of semi-refined vegetable oil for biodiesel fuel, which sees an increasing demand in the market as an environmentally-friendly product. As a result of this transformation, Altınyağ has become the supplier for its former competitors in cooking oil sector, while expanding its area of activity by offering products to the energy, chemistry and paint industries. Furthermore, the company plans to satisfy the customers’ versatile needs by maintaining the equipment for packed oil production.
In its high technology plant located in Izmir Ataturk Organized Industrial Zone, Altınyağ, with its experienced team, continues its production of raw vegetable oil, semi-refined and fully refined oil from oily vegetable seeds such as sunflower seed, soya bean, canola seed, linseed, flaxseed, corn seed, as well as meal, an indispensable source of feed sector.

The production lines that are currently under construction will be commissioned in the second half of 2015, increasing the capacity by 100 percent.
Adopting the principle of never compromising the quality, Altınyağ constantly analyses the quality of all seeds processed and the quality of all products offered, in private analysis laboratory established in-house. This laboratory is also the first of its kind in Turkey for oil processing.

It shares its profits with the public by being traded in Istanbul Stock Exchange with the code ALYAG and employs nearly 100 employees.

Türkiye’nin en eski ve köklü sanayi kuruluşlarından biri olarak 1962 yılından bu yana bitkisel yağ üretimi yapan Altınyağ Kombinaları A.Ş., kuruluşunun 50. yılında Artı Yatırım Holding çatısı altına katıldı. Tarihinin en önemli kilometre taşlarının kaydedildiği 2012’den itibaren Altınyağ, son tüketiciye yönelik ambalajlı yağ üretimini durdurarak küresel pazarda daha karlı ve aynı zamanda rekabetin az olduğu ham yağ üretimine odaklandı. Öte yandan çevre dostu özelliğiyle pazarda talebin giderek arttığı biyodizel yakıt üretimine yönelik yarı rafine bitkisel yağ üretimine de başlandı. Altınyağ, bu dönüşümün sonucunda yemeklik yağ alanında market raflarında rakibi olduğu markaların hammadde sağlayıcısı konumuna gelirken, ürünlerini enerji, kimya ve boya sektörlerinin de kullanımına sunarak faaliyet kapsamını genişletti. Altınyağ İzmir Atatürk Organize Sanayi Bölgesi’ndeki yüksek teknolojik donanıma sahip tesislerinde deneyimli ekibiyle ayçicek tohumu, soya fasulyesi, kanola tohumu, keten tohumu, ketencik tohumu gibi bitkisel yağlı tohumlardan ham yağ, yarı rafine ve tam rafine yağ ile yem sektörünün vazgeçilmez ihtiyacı küspe üretimini sürdürüyor. Aynı çatı altında Altınyem markasıyla hayvan besicilerine doğrudan yem üretimi de yapılıyor.
