BSU, DOST on training on food processing techniques
by Ofelia C. Empian

Interested entrepreneurs are invited to learn the art of making vacuum packed etag and various food processing techniques through the training organized by the Benguet State University in partnership with the Department of Science and Technology-Cordillera.

The training-seminar is open to entrepreneurs or those who want to enter the business of food processing, according to the Agri-based Technology Business Incubator/Innovation Center (ATBI/IC), one of the research and extension arms of BSU.

Aside from vacuum packed etag, products up for training are processed sweet potato flour, which in turn is used to create breads; and processed fruits and vegetables to be created into jams, preserves, and pickles.

Applicants must be willing to be trained and improve their own production process, willing to invest or pursue a business in any of the identified priority commodities, must be physically fit, at least high school graduate, preferably 21 to 45 year old, and must have time to attend the trainings. 

Application for the Food Technology Business Incubation is open from Nov. 3 to 17.

For more information, contact the ATBI/IC at 0927-522-9905, email at, or visit the ATBI office at Strawberry Farm, Km. 6 Betag, La Trinidad, Benguet.

The ATBI/IC was established through Board of Regents Resolution 1936, s. 2010. It is a non-profit, educational, service, research and development program where start-up and early-stage micro-scale entrepreneurial companies are nurtured in a stimulating physical environment and given access to professional support services to enhance the stability of their business ventures.

It aims to help increase the income and improve the standard of living of innovative smallholder farmers, food processors and vendors through the assistance, trainings, linkages, providing venue for development, among others, that it gives to the community.
