Voices of the exhibitors

We, the Özmermer family, started our work life with a small pita bread oven established by Hasan Özmermer, our esteemed elder, back in 1952. After more than 40 years of experience in pita, bread, francala and pastry production, we commenced flour production by establishing Özmermer Flour Factory in 1994 in order to obtain standard and high quality flour that will meet ours and our colleagues’ needs. 

Ethiopia is one of the biggest countries in Africa with a huge demand. There are many opportunities to make business here. As a producer to be here is very important to introduce our company directly to business people.

At the show we met traders, wholesalers, exporters and importers, and we had productive meetings with many serious business people. It’s been our first time attending agrofood & plastprintpack Ethiopia, so we were not sure what to expect, but it's been a great experience so far.
