The SRTF Announces the Delivery of Flour Mill Spare Parts under its “Enhancing Food Security of Aleppo and Idleb Governorates” Project

Turkey – Thursday, 28 March 2019 - The SRTF announced the delivery of a large batch of spare parts under its “Enhancing food security of Aleppo and Idleb Governorates” project, today.

 

The spare parts are designated for fixed operational flour mills under this project with 50MT/day milling capacities. These mills continue to ensure an ongoing supply of wheat flour to local bakeries in the project’s targeted areas.  

 

Worth approximately EUR 13.7 million, the project is expected to have a highly positive impact in terms of creating an environment of confidence for the local farming community with regards to the cereals market and for the population with regard to the availability of reliable supplies of flour to local bakeries. On a monthly basis, some 225,000 people  including 20,000 farmers, will directly benefit from the project, which will be implemented over a period of 18 months.

 

Indirectly, the project will benefit some 2 million people as a result of food price stabilization, reduced bread prices, family-wide food security, and economic growth.
