July 5 (Bloomberg) -- Unilever’s Turkish unit will build a new plant in central Turkey at an initial cost of about $100 million to produce food, personal and home care products, chief executive officer Izzet Karaca said.
Unilever Turkey’s investment “may increase later with additions”, Karaca said in an interview in Istanbul today. The new plant may also have a logistics unit, he added.
The company expects 1.2 billion euros ($1.7 billion) of sales in Turkey this year, according to Karaca.
