The number of businesses in Britain is growing, among them numerous British Turkish entrepreneurs. In its latest edition, T-VINE Magazine takes a look at how Turkish brands are performing: “the success stories, the emerging brands and those which have the potential to strike out beyond their ethnic market.”
Eight pages are devoted to the cover story in issue 9 of the magazine, now available from any branch of TFC, Yasar Hallim and Akdeniz supermarkets, as well as many other locations in London and beyond. Or subscribe and have the magazine delivered direct.
Teaming up with business and marketing experts, T-VINE assesses the performance of “heavyweight” brands from Turkey, such as Beko and Turkish Airlines, alongside the home-grown success stories of JJ Food Service and TFC. The feature delves into the sectors where Turks are commercially most prominent, particularly food and drink, driven by an explosion in the UK’s ethnic food market, and the reasons that are holding some Turkish-owned businesses back.
The 48-page full colour magazine also features interviews with the UK’s hottest chef Selin Kiazim, the TRNC’s first female Foreign Minister Emine Çolak, and Istanbul’s finest psychedelic rockers BaBa ZuLa on turning twenty.
