The workshops took place with an average of 135 training hours for 33 Palestinian women. The training aims at providing participants with the necessary knowledge and hands-on skills in the areas of food safety and hygiene, food-processing, quality assurance, as well as packaging and labelling of the final products that meet certain standards.
The training will continue until the end of December 2021 tackling different theoretical and practical areas of food processing and production, to ensure that women participants are equipped with the needed knowledge and technical skills to produce final products according to specific standards in terms of food packaging and production.
The InnovAgroWoMed project aims at stimulating women’s labour market participation and entrepreneurship, by harnessing the potential of the agri-food sector and showing a significant level of untapped potential for innovation and growth. This three-year project is funded at 87% by the European Union through the ENI CBC Med Program for a global amount of €2,8 million euros.
