A Family Business With A Long History In The Kebab Industry

Istanbul Meats – The Doner Kebab Meat Manufacturer

Istanbul Meats have become one of the countries premier doner kebab meat manufacturers.

Founded by husband and wife Ali & Nuran Adiguzel. Prior to incorporating the company in 1994, Ali & Nuran (who still run the company today) ran a successful kebab shop in Stanley, County Durham.

Early in the their time as kebab shop owners, the couple realised that their customers wanted their kebabs to be the same quality and consistency every time they called in for their favorite takeaway. They quickly understood that the only way to guarantee this consistent quality, was to manufacture their own kebab meat, so Ali set about blending his own recipe, using traditional spice mixes and locally sourced quality meats.

The resulting Kebab meat was so popular that other kebab shop owners approached Ali to ask if he would sell them the meat for their own shops. Within a year of that first kebab, the shop had been transformed into a production and freezing facility, two years later the business relocated to a large industrial unit on Team Valley Trading Estate in Gateshead.
Still a family business, today the company is one of the countries premier Doner Kebab Manufacturers, operating from multiple state of the art facilities in the North East of England, it sells huge quantities of stock, to a combination of commercial food distributors and wholesalers, both nationally and internationally.

Having grown organically through recommendation and word of mouth, the companies success is a testament to Ali and Nurans commitment to using only the finest quality ingredients, rigorous quality control measures and an emphasis on customer satisfaction.

I have ordered my kebab meat from Istanbul Meats for almost 30 years now and have always received a high quality product. They were recommended to me by a family member who knew Ali when he owned his own shop. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone, as long as they're not based within 5 miles of my shop!

Catering for a very specific, but large market, I needed a kebab meat product that was manufactured to my own tried and tested recipe. Istanbul meats are the only kebab meat manufacturer that I would use for my products, they really care about what they do and consistently deliver exactly what I need.
