INTENSE INTEREST IN WOMEN'S COOPERATIVES AND THE PRODUCTS OF THE LOCAL UNIONS
The interest of citizens in Başkent Markets, where the products of women's cooperatives and local unions are offered for sale, is increasing day by day.

BAŞKENT MARKET ASKİ BRANCH DON'T HAVE INTENSIVE ATTENTION
Halk Ekmek General Manager Hüseyin Velioğlu, who stated that they both support local producers and provide employment and bring together economic and natural products with citizens without intermediaries, made the following statements:
“Our Mansur president had an ideal, there will be nobody left hungry and open in Ankara and rural development will be achieved. We want to have local products produced by farmers in Ankara and present them to consumers. This is a very important application. Cooperatives were not very active in previous years. Cooperatives have become active thanks to the struggle we have been waging for 1,5 years. We are actively working with 5 women's cooperatives. The number of employment in cooperatives has also increased. More than 650 items of our products are on the shelves. We have very special products, in addition to these, we bring together 85 items of Halk Ekmek's with Ankara residents at Başkent Market. We paid approximately 9 million lira to our cooperatives in 15 months. We are taking rapid steps together in line with the local, rural development goals of our Mansur president. We are working for our citizens to reach affordable, natural and healthy food under pandemic conditions. "
