Turkey and Japan to spread pasta brand
The company, Nisshin Seifun Turkey, whose $36 million pasta production facility is scheduled to start production in Ankara's Sincan district by 2015 will be entirely export-oriented, adding to Turkey's 600,000 tons a year shipments of pasta. Turkey is a major producer of pasta and second only to Italy when it comes to exports of the popular food.
"This investment signifies the investor-confidence in Turkey and the strong level of cooperation between the two countries. More partnerships and foreign investments in the food sector will follow Nisshin Seifun Turkey's example", Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister Ali Babacan said at the establishment ceremony of the company. ■
