It is also among the objectives of the project to expand the areas of use of local wheat and varieties with the high-quality breads and pastries produced using whole wheat flour by using the wheat varieties grown in the region based on the exclusive recipes that were created, and to enable the involved women to gain sustainable incomes with the revenue obtained from the project.
