2014 Project update: Opening a regional postharvest training and services center in Sub-Saharan Africa


This poster, presented by Bertha Mjawa, of the Tanzania Prime Minister's Office and Marketing Infrastructure, Value Addition and Rural Finance Programme (MIVARF), focuses on project updates from 2014 for the project focused on opening a regional Postharvest Training and Services Center in Tanzania and training postharvest master trainers.

The poster provides an update on three specific project objectives:

  1. Train 30 people from Rwanda, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Benin and Gabon as postharvest specialists 
  2. Design and set up a Postharvest Training and Services Center (PTSC) 
  3. Provide demonstrations, training programs and conduct adaptive research on innovative small-scale appropriate postharvest handling, food safety and food processing methods at the PTSC in collaboration with Trainees and local extension personnel 

The poster provides photos of postharvest master trainers who were participants in the project's year-long training, the postharvest training and services center, and postharvest technologies. The poster is accompanied by a handout that contains the same text and information.

This poster was part of the Horticulture Innovation Lab 2014 Annual Meeting, which took place March 17-21, 2014, in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
