The "Araz" supermarket chain, which is part of the Veysaloglu Group of Companies (VSHG), supports the measures implemented in the direction of building an inclusive society in our country. Thus, the "Araz" supermarket chain makes a great contribution to ensuring the employment of unemployed and job-seeking persons who are part of the vulnerable group.

"Araz" employs more than 300 employees from vulnerable groups
