15 days short term fruit preservation training under non plan-side

Name of scheme

15 days short term fruit preservation training under non plan-side

Introduction

Production of fruits and vegetables is increasing day-by-day in the state but due to absence of a simple food processing technology a very large portion (about 30 to 40%) gets decayed. Production of fruits and vegetables is in big volumes in particular seasons whereas in off-season they get dearer. At times when fruits and vegetables arrive in market in large volume, farmers do not get even the cost price of their produce. To use the availability of such fruits and vegetables all the year around, short term fruit preservation program are being conducted at 77 community fruit preservation centers in the state with an objective of preserving and making tasty preserved food items by scientific methods.
