Agriculture in mountain has been considered unattractive as it is not as productive as in flat land. Mountain definitely outgrows nutritional crops and some pseudo-cereals as compared to any other crops. In order to make farming more productive, value addition of local produce is one more initiative. Rural areas have huge markets for the bakery products and all such products are imported from the urban area, despite the availability of raw material in the local region. Keeping this problem in view; HESCO took the initiative to fabricate low cost bakery, and product protocols. 35 rural women and farmers were trained on bakery product preparations and other value added products.
