Baalbaq fair promotes local agro-food products

28-9-2020

The Lebanese Organization for Studies and Training (LOST) concluded last Friday the “Khayrat Baalbek-Hermel Exhibition for Sustainable Agriculture and Food Processing” at the “Community Farm” located in the Baalbaq Plains. Around 35 farmers and producers showcased their products as part of “Supporting Farmers and Improving the Agricultural Environment” project implemented by LOST in partnership with the German-based WHH organization. The 3-day activity aims to boost local agricultural production and promote food industries, such as olive oil, molasses, pickles, jams, Khishk and rose water, in addition to dairy and other traditional mooneh products. It also contributes to the creation of new markets for agricultural production and building the capacities and training of farmers on agrarian marketing, said LOST’s Tarek Shebli, who stressed that the organization is keen to ensure that the displayed products boast high food safety and health standards and are free of chemicals. The exhibition, he added, helps build a direct consumer-producer relationship and sell the goods on display. (Al Diyar, September 27, 2020)
