Luxembourg-based drink manufacturer Purple Beverages appealed to Turkey’s Competition Authority to buy Doğanay Foods, daily Dünya reported on Aug. 13.

Dating back to the 60s, Doğanay Foods manufactures produce like lemons, strawberries and pineapple, as well as other products like vinegar.

The company is responsible for more than 90 percent of Turkey’s turnip juice market, a traditional cold beverage.

Turnip juice is often also a side for rakı, the traditional alcoholic Turkish drink that turns from clear to gray when mixed with water.

Doğanay Foods is based in southern Adana, where they run an 80,000-square-meter factory.
