History

The foundations of Elvan, the locomotive brand of Elvan Group of Companies, were laid in 1952 in a small candy store in Zeytinburnu, Istanbul. This small shop opened in Zeytinburnu by the chocolate master Ahmet Hamdi Kadiroğlu and his son Mustafa, who earned his pocket money by selling sugar on the trains since his early ages, grew rapidly with the combination of mastery in production and sales skills. It first became a workshop, then turned into a chain of factories. Producing and marketing a wide range of products from chocolate to wafer, from sugar to jelly and from cakes to croissants, Elvan resolutely continues its journey to take its position in the Global 100, which ranks the world’s leading confectionery companies.
