Ready- made doner is the traditional meat product made from seasoned slices of meat spread out in slabs or ground meat skewered on a spit and packaged in -40 degree quick-freeze in order to transport to its places of consumption reliably and hygienically.
There are different types of doner based on the proportions of sliced and ground meat used and the type of the meat it is made of. These are:
Sliced Meat Doner: It is the type of doner which is 100% made of sliced meat. Since it is prepared by putting slices of meat spread like leaves on top of one other, it consists of many slabs of meat and it looks smaller after trimming from the sides, therefore it may be mistaken for ground meat doner.
Mixed Doner: It is the type of doner that consists of sliced and ground meat used in certain proportions. The mixed doner produced by our company has 65% sliced meat and 35% ground meat.
Ground Meat Doner: It is the type of doner that consists of 90% ground meat and 10% sliced meat. Ground meat doner falls of in leaf forms while cutting, therefore it may be mistaken for sliced meat doner.
Sucuk Doner: It is the type of doner made from ground meat seasoned with spices used in sucuk and skewered on a spit in the shape of doner.
Chicken Doner: It is the type produced from spread out slabs of chicken meat skewered on spins.
Turkey Doner: It is the type produced from spread out slabs of turkey meat skewered on spins.
