Kilye Natural

Our journey with Kilye is towards Gallipoli Peninsula famous with its history...

Kilye takes its name from a plain that silently witnessed the Canakkale War. We are among the fields, the olive orchards and the vineyards breathing the salty North Agean air. Our olives, fruits and vegetables ripen with the dance of the sun and Northwest winds. We smell the resin coming from the endless pinewoods over the hillsides.

The nature is in harmony. We enjoy our time with Kilye, as it walks us through the doors to the past, where everything used to be pure and natural.

The story of Kilye starts with Pinar and Selim Zafer Ellialtı, producing boutique natural products only for their new born son while enjoying agriculture and viticulture as their hobby. In time, with the special interest of their friends and social environment, they started professionally in a larger scale focusing on these local, pure and natural products.

Kilye Olive and Natural Products Processing Plant is located between the North Agean and Marmara Seas in Eceabat.The town has a historical significance with its special climate. In the plains having plenty of sunlight, the diversity is really high in terms of agricultural products, in addition to viniculture and olive cultivation.

The manifest of Kilye is; 'Be natural, seasonal and traditional'. The food engineers of Kilye are in the knowledge that the quality of the products depends highly on the quality of natural ingredients. Therefore the selection of the crops accordingly has a crucial importance for them. They make sure that the crops are local, seasonal and produced with organic and controlled farming with certification. Agricultural products are processed without any additional agents or chemicals. Glass is preferred for packaging in order to keep the products in the healthiest environment. The traditional methods  are preferred amongst the others.

Kilye products  do not contain any additional agents or chemicals. They are natural, seasonal and traditional.

In processing the olives, a traditional granite mill stone is used in order to obtain the original taste of extra-virgin olive oil as of past times. The system has a great ability to convert the olives into an aromatic olive oil while keeping the unique aromas and flavours of olives.

The local workers also contribute to the product development by their experience to maintain the old traditions. The products of Kilye are prominent with their diversity and simplicity of their production and they comprise high nutritional value especially for children.

After opening Kilye products, we can keep them as long as the fresh fruits and vegetables that we buy from the food open-market bazaars expire.
