E-Export push by Ülker

Ülker, Turkey's leading food company, with exports to more than 100 countries around the world, has taken an important step in e-exporting with its E-Star expertise. Ülker's popular products are available to consumers in France, Italy and the Netherlands through the 'Ülker Shop' on the Amazon Europe platform.

Ülker sends hundreds of products to millions of consumers around the world from its production and export base in Turkey. With the goal of reaching consumers through different channels, Ülker has taken important steps in "e-exporting". Ülker's products in 3 categories - candy, chewing gum, and chocolate – including its Biskrem, Hanımeller, and Albeni products, are now available to consumers in France, Italy, and the Netherlands through the online “Ülker Shop” opened on Amazon Europe. Ülker will add Spain, Germany, and England very soon.

All Ülker Shop supply and infrastructure operations are undertaken by E-Star, a subsidiary of Yıldız Holding which caters only to online channels, and is the first and only supply company in this field.
