Amasya, located in northern Turkey near to the Black Sea coast, is a place of outstanding natural beauty. Established in the 4th century BC, the town has been the home of a number of civilizations and cultures and has witnessed many transitions of power.
Today the town is a thriving hub for fruit agriculture, especially apples, and also for tourism both domestic and international. On the outskirts of the town of Amasya, stands the impressive and modern flourmill of Kozlu Gida, also known as Misun.
The origins of Kozlu date back to the 1940s when the company was originally established with a small wheat mill in Amasya having a daily capacity of just 16 tonnes. Over the years, the daily milling capacity gradually increased but when the decision was taken to build a new, state-of-the-art mill for 900 tonnes per day, this put Kozlu on the map as one of the top millers in Turkey. Later this year, with further expansion work, the capacity will reach 1500 tonnes per day.
Today, Kozlu is still a family-run business with 3 generations of the family involved in the management of the mill and the philosophy has always been the same: seek the very best in each and every aspect of the business.
With this progressive philosophy in mind, the Kozlu family decided unanimously to award Fawema the contract to supply a new automatic flour packing line to pack retail-size flour of 1 kg 2 kg and 5 kg in ready-made paper bags.
Mr Emir Kozlu explains the criteria behind the decision: “we wanted the best quality flour packing machine available on the market because we wanted to achieve the best possible results”.
Fawema proposed the FA217 machine and the modern and advanced technology included in the packing line perfectly matched the client’s aspirations and objectives. Thanks to modern servo-drive, the machine is extremely accurate and the wear & tear drastically reduced compared to mechanical cam-drive machinery.
