On Bikudo since

The history of Pak Group of Companies can be traced back to Mustafa Nevzat Ilaç San. A.S., founded in 1923 by Prof. Mustafa Nevzat as a small pharmaceutical laboratory.

Mustafa Nevzat is now a leading pharmaceutical company in Turkish market with significant overseas presence. The manufacturing experience gained through the production of packaged pharmaceuticals, as well as and pharmaceutical raw materials, allowed the group to enter the biotechnology industry when the first baker’s yeast plant in Turkey started production in 1973 at Kosekoy, Kocaeli, about 100 km from Istanbul.

The brand name Pakmaya became synonymous with industrial yeast, which in turn revolutionized the way bakeries made bread. To meet the ever-increasing demand, a second production plant was built at Izmir-Kemalpasa in 1986, and a third at Duzce-Cumayeri in 1990. A fourth baker’s yeast plant was established in Pascani, Romania in 1998 to serve the East European market.

All Pakmaya plants conform to the highest level of international hygiene and quality standards, using all-computerized systems for production, accounting, warehousing and delivery. An experienced team of around 1,000 people produce fresh, active dry and instant yeast varieties in Pakmaya plants. State-of-the-art machinery and equipment is used to ensure highest possible quality and hygiene standards.

Pakmaya is one of the top yeast producers in the world, having achieved a capacity equivalent to 250,000 tons of fresh yeast through stable growth ever since 1973.

To complement the baker’s yeast products, As Gida, also a Pak Group company, was established in 1986. As Gida specializes in bread additives, bread improvers, flour fortifiers and improvers, premixes, pastry ingredients such as whipped creams and gels, as well as milling products.

Pakmaya undertook the necessary investments to create production and distribution under the most rigorous and hygienic conditions for meeting ever increasing domestic and international demand. In 1973 the Köseköy, Izmit factory was established in Turkey for the production of bakers’ yeast. Due to ever increasing demand, Kemalpaşa, the Izmir factory was then established in 1986, and followed by the Cumayeri, Duzce factory in 1990. Pakmaya founded its fourth bakers’ yeast factory in Paşcani, Romania in 1998. This modern plant meets most of Romania’s demand for yeast, as well as exporting to many neighboring countries.

Serving with its cold storage houses, refrigerated trucks and strong sales network encompassing all country, Pakmaya is committed to the continuous development of the efficiency and productivity of its systems based a sense of top quality.
