Generation of Employment

Throughout Pakistan, it is a common sight to witness groups of women walking for miles with tons of agricultural produce delicately balances on their heads. The introduction of basic food processing methods empowers these individuals to engage in alternative income-generating activities which are neither capital-intensive nor physically demanding.

Enhancement of Food Security

Basic food processing and food preservation prolongs the shelf life of perishable produce, reduces post-harvest losses and increases food security, which can easily be implemented at the individual or household level. This enabled producers to have increased access to food for consumption or trade.
