Matlı Group of Companies’ passion for agriculture and animal husbandry, which has been going on over half a century, began in 1965 when Ömer Matlı started his business by trading onions in the Karacabey district of Bursa. In the early 1970s, Ömer Matlı switched to animal trade and dairy farming in parallel, and with the commercial reputation and accumulated capital brought by his success in these businesses, he entered the paddy business and stepped into industrialism with the paddy factory he established in 1982. In 1986, he decided to produce animal feed. This investment decision was realised in 1988 with the production of 10 tons of dairy and beef cattle feed per hour at the factory in Karacabey. In addition to this factory, the region’s first modern corn-drying facility was added in 1992. In 1995, Özer and Önder Matlı, who took over the flag with the death of Ömer Matlı, continued the company’s investment activities without slowing down.
Today, Matlı, which ranks first in feed production in Turkey and is Turkey’s largest egg producer with a total daily production capacity of 5.5 million eggs in its facilities in Karacabey and Akhisar, has been in the retail sector since 2010.
