At the panel held within the scope of the summit, Barilla Gıda Commercial Marketing Manager Şefik İnan gave a speech about the future plans of Barilla. “Healthy nutrition has become a significant trend on a global scale. Consumers, in light of this trend, turned to obtain most of their protein needs from herbal foods. As Barilla, we have products in our international portfolio in this scope. We are working on how to develop these products in the local scale. On the other hand, we are conducting R&D studies to make Ata Seeds (heirloom), our national heritage, a part of our daily nutrition routine. Another trend that has recently been on the rise is packaged ready-made food. We are planning to implement significant projects also in this field in the forthcoming period," İnan said.
