Launched in 2015, GCA exports glass bottles and jars for food and beverage categories.

It aims to grow its export markets through attending trade fairs, showcasing its product portfolio, and through R&D (research and development) studies.

Dr Abdullah Gayret, general manager of GCA, said: “At GCA, we have reached the point of exporting to all continents with our world-class bottle and glass jar products in the food and beverage categories. We presently export to over 40 countries.

“In the last year, we expanded our export markets to include Central America, South America and Mexico.

“Our quality products, customer-oriented approach and participation in various fairs are all factors that have contributed to our success. Every month, we attend the leading food and beverage fairs.

“At this point, I believe that international fairs play a significant part in establishing new connections and potential collaborations. We are currently conducting extensive research in the framework of advantageous regions as a new potential export location.”

GCA intends to collaborate with its business partners at all given opportunities. The company is confident its strong relationships will help to increase the company’s exports.

Gayret added: “We are effectively carrying out projects that will carry the glass packaging industry in our country forward with the effective and sustainable studies we carry out in the field of R&D.

“In our factories, where cutting-edge technology is used at every stage, all production processes are automated. We continue to invest with the goal of becoming a brand that capitalises on the sector’s digital trends.”

GCA will sponsor the Spirits Bottler of the Year prize at The Spirits Business Awards 2024.
