In 1978, Akif Kucukbay founded Kucukbay Oil Industries, Inc. in Turkey, a family owned and operated business supplying the Turkish domestic market with premium specialty cooking oils. For three decades the Kucukbay family has devoted their lives to the oilseed and olive groves industry and produced an
excellent array of edible oils under their own brand name: Orkide. After gaining nationwide recognition in Turkey for high quality products and
commitment to service, Kucukbay Oil Industries began to interest consumers in other countries as well. Currently managed by second generation members (Chairman Ahmet Kucukbay and vice Chairman Halil Kucukbay), Orkide has seen worldwide commercial success—and now has branch offices in both Japan and the US.
Orkide cooking oils are made of 100% pure oil with no additives, no genetically engineered oil seeds, no harsh chemicals used during the extraction of oil so that the great flavor of your food comes through every time.
Family owned and operated since its birth in 1979, Orkide supplies customers across the globe with premium specialty vegetable oils and margarines. Located in Turkey near the port of Izmir, Orkide is one of the largest edible oil refining plants in the world. It refines, stores, and ships in excess of 365,000 metric tons (3.1 million barrels) of specialty oils each year to discriminating customers in over 80 countries. Orkide supplies many of the world’s largest food processing companies as well as small and medium sized micro-markets.
Orkide cooking oils are made of 100% pure oil with no additives, so the great flavor of your food always comes through. All Orkide oils are cholesterol free and delicious, and make nutritious and healthy additions to any meal.
