An employee of the Istanbul Municipalities Halk Ekmek (People’s Bread) factory checks a bread production line in Istanbul, Turkey. Istanbul’s Halk Ekmek factories produce more than 1.5 million breads a day at half the price of independent bakeries. The Turkish lira continued to fall throughout the week after the Central Bank of Turkey decided to cut its policy rate by one percent, sending the pound to a record low of 11.3 against the dollar. The currency crisis is shaking the Turkish economy and raising living standards as people struggle to make ends meet. Groceries and the cost of living in general continued to rise over the past month, with flour alone increasing 80% in one month, forcing the price of bread from 2TRY to 2.50TRY, many families relying on the half-priced Halk Ekmek (bread of the peoples) to survive. . The looming economic crisis has led Turkish opposition parties to push for immediate elections amid calls for economic mismanagement.Credit:Getty Images
