The Bureau of Plant Industry-Guimaras National Crop Research Development and Production Support Center (BPI-Guimaras NCRDPSC) conducted training on mango processing on April 20-22, 2016 at Calaya, Nueva Valencia, Guimaras.
The 3-day training was attended by 31 participants, mostly women eager to gain knowledge and skills on mango processing, specifically on pickles, atsara, juice and dried mango production.
The training will not only equip the local women on how to produce different mango processed products but at the same time provide them additional source of income. Moreover, it will also help address the lack of supply of mango processed products in the province of Guimaras. It could be noted that Guimaras is known for its mangoes, both fresh and processed products.
On the other hand, the Center continuously conducts training and seminars relative to this to different stakeholders to promote the adoption of different matured technologies on mango production and processing. For training and seminar schedule, please call BPI-Guimaras at (033) 237 1391.
