A ceremony was held in Tekirdağ province on account of exporting the whey powder to China produced at the MAYBİ factory.
Speaking at the ceremony, Chairman of the Board of Yazgan Group of Companies, Vural Yazgan, said that by processing 1.5 million litres of whey daily, they obtain 70-75 tons of products.
Stating that whey powder is used in the baby food, biscuit, bread and meat industry and sports drinks, Yazgan noted, “Today we export 200 million dollars to China. 45 companies across the country meet this. Our factory produces about 10 percent of this amount.”
Yazgan explained that they are exporting to 52 countries across the world from Japan to Algeria and continued as follows:
“There was no Chinese in these countries we have making exports. China has a serious buying potential. Therefore, today is a very important day for us. From now on what we aim is to increase our investments and to produce calf milk along with coffee cream which we import. We are planning to rise our capacity and enlarge our workforce we provide in the region by producing these products as well.”
Meanwhile Oktay Öcal, Tekirdağ Provincial Manager of Agriculture and Forestry, stated that they carried out technical transactions related to export and issued certificates.
Öcal also added that 54 companies in this sector were given export permits and they were proud of exporting the first whey powder from Tekirdağ to China.
