Our group of companies has started its business life by the establishment of our first company named Kalender Zirai ve Sanayi Maddeleri Pazarlama Ltd. Şirketi in 1978.
Kalender Zirai ve Sanayi Maddeleri Pazarlama Ltd. Şirketi started to its business life by exporting and importing cotton and its subproducts from and to Turkey with the cooperation of an Swiss company called Reinhart AG who has been in this sector since 1788. This cooperation is still going on.
Kalender Zirai ve Sanayi Maddeleri Pazarlama Ltd. Şirketi called Kalender Pazarlama in short is the first company who had been given the license of importing hybrid seeds in Turkey in 1984. With this license Kalender Pazarlama imported hybrid seeds from a Dutch company called Sluis and Groot currently owned by one of the world’ leading Swiss company called Syngenta in its sector.. This cooperation between Kalender and Sluis & Groot had contributed a lot to the Turkish vegetable and fruit production between mid 1980s up until mid 1990s.
Kalender Pazalama kept running its operations in the agriculture sector by making an agreement with an Italian company called Valagro which is a fertilizer production company and this allowed Kalender Pazarlama importing and distributing the fertilizers to all over Turkey. Cooperation between a Spanish company called Kimitec, Italian companies called Puccioni, Pavoni and Scam and especially German company called SKWP followed it. Running its operations in the agriculture sector had allowed Kalender Pazarlama of being honored by getting prizes because of the tax installments that she had done in the previous years in the city of Antalya.
