“The training will focus on processing the fallen apple and vegetable towards the value addition such as juice, jelly, jam and pickle making,” the NABARD spokesman said. Singh said there is tremendous scope of apple and vegetable processing in Kashmir keeping in view the availability of raw material and rural women need to be provided training in this sector thus enabling them to set up small units based at their homes or through SHG mode.

The programme is supported by NABARD and implemented through the NGO Human Welfare Foundation by engaging master trainers and involving food processing experts from the Horticulture and Agriculture Department.

The training will equip these women with necessary skill required for creating food processing units at village level and their produce can easily be marketed through the FPOs promoted by NABARD in the area, informed Rouf Zargar.
