    I have made a rule when I decided to become the leader of the team that will provide Tavelmout on the dining tables all over the world. When making a decision, I always ask myself whether I am on an ego trip or I am with an open mind. The brand, in other words, building trust with customers is the top priority. I think it is the minimum requirement to be accepted by society. It is my nature to understand and improve my own capacity in order to contribute to the business.
