How Did We Do It?

  • Organic Dried Fruits Supplier Yabanfood

    From the moment we launched our projects, we sought to produce the best organic dried fruits, nuts and other products and to be the best dried fruits company in Turkey by collaborating reliably with our farmers and customers. Our philosophy is to protect the heirloom seeds of dry fruits in Turkey and the environment by engaging sustainably with our farmers and dried fruit suppliers.

  • Yabanfood is a family-owned company born from a tradition of dried fruit wholesale spanning 3 generations and dating back to the 1940s. Being a family-owned company allowed us to hold on to our values and to make quick decisions for our partners.

  • Today we offer our partners, customers and distributors in the USA, Europe and the Netherlands the best products, the best service and the best quality, with clear market information and fair prices for our suppliers and customers.

  • We believe that by cultivating and producing organic dried fruits and nuts we achieve the twin goals of protecting and improving cultivation, seeds and saplings and of attaining the highest quality in our final product.

  • In manufacturing organic dried fruits, we strive to protect the soil, water and air and to safeguard the crops from disease as our foremost aims. Our farmers play an indispensable role in achieving those aims, and to encourage and support them, we always seek to offer the best value for their products, even when dried fruit prices in Turkey prevent us from doing so.

  • We believe that Yabanfood is one of the most efficient, honest and well-organized dried fruit companies in Turkey with an experienced team and suppliers. We work with organic dried fruit wholesalers, small retailers that sell on Amazon, and distributors that sell on Costco.

Organic Mulberry Project

For us, dried mulberries are not about commodities and consumers – they are about family, ancestral traditions and an enduring relationship with the land. We began our organic mulberry project in 1994 with the native mulberry trees of southeastern Turkey.

Our project flourished through the labor and sweat of generations of farmers whom we watched grow and fade, and with whom we work to this day. When the world caught on and our organic dried mulberries became prized items, large industry actors sought to purchase the project from us with alluring offers, but we refused. We knew that the unmatched quality of our mulberries was inseparable from the knowledge, experience and relationships that our team and our farmers have fostered over time.
