（英）International Training of the Trainers on Food Processing
Faculty of Agro-Industry, Chiang Mai University
In the Greater Mekong Sub-region and ASEAN, the agriculture sector is the primary source of income for most of the working population in these countries. There is an urgent need to diversify and create additional on-farm and off-farm incomes as the current income to rural households is regularly disrupted, as the rural poor in the countries deal with the vagaries of agriculture. The capability in these countries to develop and operate rural business needs strenthening, and people need the necessary skill sets to be able to take full advantage of rural income diversification. Production-oriented or technical skills training is needed with the use of food science, preservation technology and nutrition, to enable processing of agricultural raw materials, and adding value to foods, thus providing stable incomes to rural households. Training of Trainers on food processing could respond to the needs of the region and focusing on the impact in order to expand skills for development in rural areas effectively.
Increasing number of skilled trainers in the targeted countries who are capable of transferring knowledge on food processing from the preliminary to advance level for local people in their respective contries.
1) To train and assit new and revisiting former trainers on the topics relating to village food processing both at general and in-depth levels so that the trainers will be able to organize training and transfer the skills to the people at the village level in their respective countries
2) To give opportunities for the trainers to learn and observe the actual practices of food processing methods implemented on the village level of the rural areas and comparing them to the procedure conducted in small-scale food industries.
3) To assist the prospective trainers in establishing the sustainable training course on food processing in their respective countries.
The participants will gain essential knowledge on food processing and after completing the training, they will be able to;
(1) transfer knowledge and skill at community level
(2) compare food processing methods to the procedure conducted in small-scale food industries
(3) be the trainers in establishing training course on food processing in their countries
Training subjects are as below;
2. Food Science and Technology
3. Product Development and Technology
