Alapala awarded Milling Machinery Producer of the Year

TURKEY—Alapala, a Turkey-based turnkey solution provider in food processing technologies, has been acknowledged as the ‘Milling Machinery Producer of the Year’ by IAOM Eurasia committee, once again proving itself a world leader in the production of grain milling technology.

IAOM Eurasia Conference and Expo, organized by the International Association of Operative Millers – a professional society for grain milling industry professionals— is a meeting venue for grain millers and trade representatives to foster the development of training and learning opportunities in the milling industry.


At the 2022 expo, held at Istanbul Lütfi Kırdar Congress Center between May 19 and 22, 2022, Alapala was awarded the “Milling Machinery Producer of the Year” at the “Milling Awards” ceremony for its recent development “Next Generation Milling Systems”.

The system “enables machines to operate independently and error-free without any human interaction,” Alapala said.

The company also said the system “provides high reliability, process optimization, energy efficiency, consistent quality and little need for human intervention all together in the grain milling process.”

Alapala CEO, Mr Görkem Alapala has attended to the conference, and Alapala R&D Manager, Mr Sezai Aydın also made a presentation to introduce system to the attendees.

In 2021 Alapala delivered 24 turnkey projects in 16 countries as well as numerous machinery exports to different parts of the world in 2021. Some of turnkey project highlights from the year were completed in Angola, Bangladesh, UAE, Ecuador, and India.


For 2022, there are more than 40 turnkey projects in the company’s project portfolio in 27 countries, with a total value of US$120 million, said Görkem Alapala, chief executive officer of Alapala Group.

Some of important projects in this year’s scope are in Brazil, Panama, Belgium, Kosovo, Qatar, Yemen, and Zimbabwe. With the completion of these projects, Alapala will reach more than 900 total projects across the globe.

Last year, Alapala acquired 70% of the shares of Italian Axor Srl, which operates in the pasta technologies industry and builds turnkey pasta plants worldwide. With this strategic investment, the group both achieved important growth and took a significant step toward the goal of building integrated plants in the food industry.
