About us

Ekin Kimya is a pioneering company that supplies high-quality chemical products to Turkey and surrounding countries.

We build long-term strategic partnerships with the world’s leading chemical manufacturers, and we offer an extensive product portfolio to the pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics, lube oil, medical and diagnostic sectors. 

At Ekin Kimya, we understand and foresee the current and future needs of our customers. Our specilized sales team serves over 350 customers in the food and cosmetics sector all around Turkey.

We work with reliable chemical producers in the world, and we maintain a high-quality, sustainable inventory of products to ensure an uninterrupted supply. We can deliver on the same or the following day according to our customers’ needs. We offer flexible shipping also for small volumes.  

Since 2003, we are the distributor of Velcorin, a Lanxess product specially designed for the beverage sector. With our Velcorin dosing unit, we perform on site product testing, analyze production processes and determine steps to maximize hygiene. We organize Velcorin customer trainings to increase safe product usage.  
Becoming the distributor of BASF food products in 2005 has been a major turning point for Ekin Kimya. In 2010, we significantly expanded our product range and customer base when Cognis was acquired by BASF. Today, in addition to product supply, we support customers to improve existing product formulations and generate new product ideas through product tests and recipe consulting at the BASF Kitchen located in the BASF Istanbul office.

Since 2006, we are the sole authorized distributor in Turkey for USP reference standards and the Food Chemical Codex (FCC). Every two years, we collaborate with USP to organize conferences that attract reference laboratories, government representatives and sector professionals.

In 2014, we became the distributor for Stevia, a natural sweetener produced by Pure Circle, in parallel with the increased interest in healthy, natural products as well as the expectations of the food and beverages industry. With the aim of optimizing costs and developing healthier products, we carry out Stevia projects at our GEBKIM laboratories where we reduce the sugar content in products.

Performance ingredients
Today’s consumers want food products that as well as being good for their health also feel good in the mouth. To help you achieve this, BASF offers a wide variety of additives that offer your customers a holistic product experience by giving food a pleasant texture and additional health benefits. One example is the Lamequick® whipping agent: this delivers the perfect combination of great taste and pleasant mouth feel in desserts and cream fillings, and is made largely from mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids.

BASF offers polymers for filtration and stabilization of beer and wine. Crosspure® is a 2-in-1 solution for beer filtration and stabilization all at once. Divergan® is a stabilization aid which adsorbs haze-forming polyphenols and thereby stabilizes beer and wine for long-lasting clarity. Based on insoluble PVPP, filtration with Crosspure or Divergan perfectly maintains the taste and character of the beverage. BASF’s products are a highly economical and eco-friendly alternative to diatomaceous earth.
