On the topic of Ülker's My Beautiful Country Forests continuing to grow in different provinces of Türkiye, Turhan said, “Our employees work hand in hand to support the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry’s Breath for the Future Campaign.

This will add 10,000 more saplings, and we will continue to increase this number."
