For this reason, our farmers should be supported and encouraged to continue production. Farmers may sometimes be adversely affected by the fierce competition of the wheat market and have to sell their harvest below the average price. Thanks to this project, led by President İmamoğlu to support the farmer, the wheat will be supplied from our own farmer with a guaranteed sales, without worrying about selling the wheat at a base price. It will turn into bread in our own production facilities and be a guest at the tables of the people of Istanbul.”
