BODRUM MANDARIN SODA & DELIGHT
Bodrum Chamber of Commerce initiated a project in 2006 to prevent tangerine orchards from succumbing to construction, to revitalize the tangerine production, which adds vitality to Bodrum’s economy, and to ensure the production of products that create added value. Within the scope of this project, by establishing the Bodrum District Citrus Producer Association, it was requested that they meet with the garden owners in the towns and become a member of the association and support our project.
In 2007, works were started for a closed facility, and in 2010, the Citrus Grading and Packaging Facility with a closed area of 1150 m2 was opened in Ortakent. A grading and packaging machine with units with a citrus processing capacity of 7.5 tons in 1 hour was installed in the facility to be used for the sale of citrus fruit for table use in the domestic and foreign markets.
In 2007, the first value-added product was obtained by producing Bodrum Mandarin Soda, plain and with tangerine, followed by jam, Turkish delight and cologne produced from Bodrum tangerines.
In order to support this project, the people of Bodrum have started to produce original products from tangerines by protecting them. New works have taken their places on the shelves, including chocolate, food, stuffed, jams and dried products.
Our Bodrum Mandarin Soda was registered by TPI and in 2009, Geographical Indication Registration was made by TPI.
