BEIRUT: It is often a challenge for athletes and health-conscious people to find healthy snacks to go along with their daily food consumption and help them achieve a vigorous lifestyle. Soumaya Merhi, owner of Bread Basket Square, or BBS, helps those looking for a healthy lifestyle by providing them with high-quality local products made from non-genetically modified (GMO) grains.Bread Basket is the first and only wheat-free bakery in Lebanon. Its mission is to provide natural and freshly baked goods made from barley, oat, rye and spelt.Today, the main items produced by BBS include Arabic bread made of rye, oat and spelt, in addition to vegan maamoul and locally made healthy energy bars, the taqa bar, inspired by an old Lebanese pastry.BBS was initially funded by a microloan from Kafalat. But since last January, Merhi started pitching at different investors in Lebanon and she managed to secure funds from an angel investor, IM Capital and Diana Foundation.
