The study assesses the experiences of factory owners and farmers in a country, focusing on the ‘Production of Consumer Goods and its Processing’ project. The majority of factory owners are male, aged 41–50, and produce and sell food items. The project has increased laborers’ employment opportunities and profits. Most factory owners test their products in accredited laboratories, with 47.4% working as experts in recipe development. Modern machinery has decreased production costs, and packaging is a priority for 89.5% of respondents. Most respondents receive loans for running their factories, and no obstacles have been encountered in production or marketing. The study suggests providing more loans and promoting environmentally friendly farming practices.
