3 of our brothers aged from 20 to 25, were initiated to work in our İzmir factory at the second quality storage unit. This was their first work experience. We took steps together with them in a new atmosphere, new friendships and a new life experience. We’ve been working and producing together for 18 months.
”We don’t just see sustainability as the protection of natural resources, energy usage and waste management. We embrace sustainability in every single step taken.
Our goal is for them to work in the field completely unaccompanied. We will be doing everything in our power as Akar Textile workers to make that happen. And with this we say “welcome aboard” and wish a succesful work life.
