Presentation Title: Opportunities for Turkey Glass Packaging Exports
The potential of multinational food and beverage companies in terms of glass packaging is high. Having not had to become a mission company to meet the demand with new glass packaging manufacturers in the domestic market has now led us to move our route abroad to evaluate this potential. Turkey is no longer the country that imports of glass packaging, should be an exporting country. Our growing capacity with Industry 4.0 helps us to present the quality of a Turkish company to the world glass packaging industry. In addition, the award-winning design strength, the presence of the world's leading glass research and development center, strengthen the current position of the Turkish glass packaging industry among other manufacturers. Our export vision is to be a pioneer and open the horizon.
