Projects to carry food sector to the future are rewarded


The champions for V. International Food R&D Project Market became clear in an Agean Exporters Association organization with ‘carry your idea to the future’ slogan that aims to bring together new ideas and to increase value added production. The winners got 120 thousand TL where 10 prizes were given in 5 categories.

Rıza Seyyar, Agean Exporters Association Food R&D Project Market Chairman of Executive Council, in his speech at the award ceremony said, although may seem costly, R&D decreases unit cost and increases quality and is very important especially for international competition. “We have to be dynamic and go with innovations to be competitive in international markets and increase export.” says Seyyar, “In the past our problem was to find a market , nowadays the important thing is to be competitive and innovator with the changing conditions so this is why R&D Project market has a significant importance. This organization proves our change in the way of commercial interpretation. We are aware of the importance of innovation just like developed countries.”

Turkey Exporters Council Vice President Mustafa Cıkrıkcıoglu pointed out that in the global markets competition is escalating and consumer intentions are different; design and brand competition is becoming prominent over price competition. Cıkrıkcıoglu, mentioned that competition is tough and continues as; “Export is becoming more difficult. We have to increase value added production. Of course this is not easy. We have to have a mentality revolution. We have to design highly productive processes in production, design, purchasing, and packaging. So how will we do this? with our potential.. with willpower.. with faith in success.. with new Turkey brand.. We will build foundation of export with innovation and design.”
