Ulusoy Flour Company established its first plant in 1989 in Samsun, Turkey, with an initial production capacity was 180 metric tons per day. In 2014 the firm achieved a 5 percent share of Turkey’s flour export market, making it 5th in the industry. 
Today, the company has expanded its milling capacity to 900 metric tons per day in two plants, one located in Samsun and the other in Çorlu, Tekirdağ. Ulusoy Flour currently exports flour to 80 countries on 5 continents.

“Ulusoy Flour Company, as one of the biggest flour manufacturers, has already exceeded its export target," said Mr Günhan Ulusoy, Company President.

Mr Ulusoy is currently also president of the executive board of the Turkish Flour Industrialists’ Federation (TUSAF).

According to Mr Ulusoy, at the beginning of 2015 the company's export target was about 126 thousand tons of wheat flour, but by the end of the year the actual total export volume is forecast to reach 160 thousand tons, beating the original target by 27 percent.

Ulusoy Flour's next target is to double its wheat flour export market share to ten percent.

According to news provided to Milling and Grain by the company, in response to rising market demand, Ulusoy decided to expand its capacity with a third factory, in the Samsun Food Organised Industrial Zone, beginning construction in 2014.  Completion is expected in 2016 and the factory will have a 600 ton/day milling capacity in a 30,000m2 area.
