Biskot Bisküvi San. ve Tic. A.Ş.

Ülker Bisküvi acquired Biskot Gıda, operating in three factories in the Karaman Industrial Estate, in 1999. In 2006, Biskot Gıda sold the cake factory - one of its four factories - to AGS Anadolu Gıda, in which it has a 99% share. In 2007, Biskot Gıda sold its shares in AGS Anadolu Gıda to its shareholders.

Providing jobs to around 2,700 people at the three factories in the Karaman Industrial Estate, Biskot Gıda is the most important industrial enterprise and the biggest employer in the region.

Significant increases in the production capacity of the chocolate facility with a winkler molding line, semi-finished chocolate preparation facilities, wafer production facility, Rulokat ovens, granulated cakes line and karpuf line were recorded, in addition to the existing ones. The average capacity utilization rate was 78% at the biscuit facilities, 82% at the wafer facilities, and 78% at the Rulokat facilities with newly added ovens. The average annual capacity utilization rate at the chocolate facilities is 55%, although seasonally it goes up to 67%.

Biskot Gıda increased its biscuit production from 5,221 tons in 1999 to 101,907 tons in 2007 through new investments and efficiency improvements.
