Aysun Tokmakoglu and Meltem Sesli    

Abstract: In Akhisar district, olive culture dates back to many years; however, olives for consumption have been produced in small workshops for long years. It is observed that the workshops located in this region are converted into bigger and more modern constructions inclined towards industrialization approximately for the last 10 years. In this frame, a questionnaire study has been performed using the face-to-face interview method as addressed to establishments in order to determine the current status of olive facilities in the district of Akhisar and selected villages thereof. Questionnaire results have been evaluated with the help of the SPSS program. As a result of evaluation it is observed that there have been an increase in the number of establishments founded, especially in 1998; the establishments were small size, family owned establishments; the administrators and employees needed training especially on technical and marketing issues; the establishments predominantly produced periodically; their rates of capacity use increased; the causes for their inability to operate in full capacity included firstly the problems with regards to raw materials.
