Well, Mr. Yılmaz, first of all; congrats…
- Thank you very much.
- We also thank you… Could you please tell us about your brand? This is the very first time you take part at Zuchex Fair. It’s a new brand…
Yes, this year is the first time we take part at Zuchex. Essentially we have a category for candies and candy toys in our group company structure. And in recent years we have added plastic home products, bathroom and kitchenware products among our group company. All of our products made by our own. Now almost one year ago we begin to grow the brand. We took part in various fairs. We receive a quite number of requests from the domestic market as we started our advertisements.
Since we’re new with this brand in the business, we have started out with export to 10 countries at the moment. However, we get many new requests now, after that 10 countries. And with God’s help I hope we’ll expand our exports and we’ll explore new experiences.
- We know you by Toytoy which is on the way to become a world brand. But how did you decide to get this business in this industry?
How did the idea to enter the plastic industry come about?
- It’s because we make candy toys, we also make their packages and the toys inside out of plastic. After we increase our product line, and when we get demand in this sector, we entered this business with the same production line. Now we 7000 m2 area where we use for manufacturing and storage. As I said before, we get many requests from domestic market and we want to add new countries to our exportation and we make new goals day by day...
Mr. Yılmaz, as I look at your products I see that you have a large product range even though your brand is founded just 8 months ago... What kind of products you have in your product range?

And we keep on adding new products; we work on R&D of course. In the next 6 months we’ll be introducing our new products as well...
- Let’s talk about prices in the industry; last two years we see an increasing on the prices of raw materials. What do you think about that?
Yes after the pandemic came out, and with the effects of the rise and falls in our local currency we see an increasing on the prices. Lately it seems stable but prices are still quite high if we compare to last year. And all our plastic products are made from BPA free material. We use nature conscious original raw material and paint which is design to be contact with food. So we are known by our quality in this industry but actually this makes us prominent on the market.
Therefore our prices are relatively high to compare with last years but thanks God our products are highly requested and so that redeem itself.
- Where we gonna see the brand “Gardenia Home” in next 3 or 4 years?
