Ülker's My Beautiful Country Forest is growing

On the topic of Ülker's My Beautiful Country Forests continuing to grow in different provinces of Turkey, Turhan said, “Our employees work hand in hand to support the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry’s Breath for the Future Campaign. In cooperation with Non-Governmental Organizations, we have reached 60,000 saplings with plantings in Ankara, Karaman, and Gebze, where our factories have been located since 2011, in Hatay, which was damaged by forest fires, and in Elazığ and Eskişehir. This will add 10,000 more saplings, and we will continue to increase this number."

Over 4 months, the first 3 episodes reached 28 million views on our social media accounts and 27 million views on YouTube. The videos are shot in various regions of Turkey and convey Ülker's work in the field of sustainability as well as what consumers can do, with narration by world record holder Şahika Ercümen, and the views of experts and our company's managers."
