In Kilis, where olive production is carried out on an area of approximately 300 thousand decares, 7 thousand tons of olive oil production is expected despite the low yield. Geographically marked Kilis olive oil, which received a superior quality award in competitions held around the world, attracts attention with its distinctive, intense and spicy aroma.
