Turkey's Fish Specialist
We remember the day we introduced the first canned tuna fish to Turkish meal tables like it was yesterday. Since 1984 we have been meticulously cooking, canning and delivering tuna fish in Turkey. We chose our fish from the tastiest, healthiest, freshest tuna fish hunted in the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Our love for the fish, we feel it also for the environment and nature that create it. To that end, we did not let any fish without Dolphin Safe certification, which is a guarantee for a fishery that does not harm dolphins, to come to your table. We made sustainability our corporate culture. Thus, at the end of many years that passed, backed by your trust and love, we have become the Fish Specialist of Turkey.

It was in the can of Dardanel Tuna that miraculous tuna fish of the Mediterranean was introduced to meal tables for the first time in Turkey.
