It was founded as a family entrepreneurship in 1992 by Ramazan Öz and his brothers; but the “milk passion” of the family goes back to 1940’s as a grandfather-father business of animal husbandry and dairy farming: That is, a family born into cattle breeding,
milkmanship and dairy farming, and then grown and continues to grow; and now swiftly climbing the ladders of corporate governance...

Yörüksüt has never made any concessions on these principles.
