Kent Gida is a leading company in confectionery goods in Turkey. The company has shifted all its production facilities from Sisli and Kartal to Cayirova, on 50 km from Istanbul. By 2000, Kent consolidated the three factories into one state of the art facility in Gebze, Kocaeli. The high quality innovative products manufactured in this factory have been exported to over 100 countries around the world. The potential in these markets have led Kent to search for growth opportunities in the international markets. In 2001, this search resulted in the establishment of a 50%-50% joint venture with the Spanish lollypop manufacturer Chupa-Chups in St. Petersburg, Russia. The partnership agreement between Kent and Cadbury Schweppes was signed on February 21, 2002 in London Cadbury Schweppes acquired 51 % equity interest in Kent together with a majority equity interest in its distribution arm Birlik from the Tahincioğlu family.
