Our business is a legacy that has been passed down through generations, steeped in tradition and rooted in history. ENKO's heritage can be traced back to the year 1868, when our esteemed ancestor JAK TARANTO founded a humble spice and dried fruit manufacturing and export enterprise in the city of İzmir, Turkey. Following in his father's footsteps, LEON TARANTO took the reins of the company, which was then renamed JAK TARANTO & FILS.

Through diligent research of old archives, we have discovered that the Taranto family forged a prosperous partnership with ELIEZER KAPOUYA. In the 1960s, LEON TARANTO's sons IJEKTO (Izak) TARANTO and YEHOSHUA (Joe) TARANTO lent their expertise to the company before embarking on a new journey to Israel, where YEHOSHUA pursued career in banking. However, IJEKTO remained committed to the spice and cotton business, remaining with the company until LEON TARANTO's passing in 1980.

At this juncture, AVRAM AJI, a chemical engineer and the son-in-law of the Taranto family, took over the ownership of the company, enacting a comprehensive restructuring that included the implementation of highest universal quality standards and the initiation of organic production practices. With an unwavering commitment to excellence, AVRAM oversaw the establishment of a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in the enchanting locale of Pinarbaşı, İzmir, which has become the proud home of ENKO.

In 2001, AVRAM's esteemed son SABI AJI joined the family business, following his graduation from university. After several years of dedicated service, SABI embarked on a quest for knowledge, earning a master's degree in the dynamic field of international trade. He now serves as the company's esteemed managing director, representing ENKO with distinction international food exhibitions, symposiums, and gatherings.
