Building Capacities of Primary Producers
Improve primary producers’ production capacity, quality, value addition and access to market.
Setting up Tomato Learning and Service Center
Establish and develop a fully operational center of excellence to serve the whole tomato value chain, with specific focus on the processing sector and the human resources involved in the sector.
The “Inclusive and sustainable development of the tomato value chain in Egypt” project aims to support the development of an inclusive and sustainable tomato value chain in Egypt by increasing value-addition and by enhancing technical capacities of youth, thereby enhancing their employability and business opportunities.
The main pillar of the project is creating a Pilot Training and Service Center, specifically a Tomato Learning and Service Center (TLSC), primarily serving the tomato processing value chain by linking primary producers with the processing industry. It will aim on offering a set of services for the existing and new tomato processors to develop their business starting by upgrading labor skills through specialized training courses and by introducing innovative products and/or processes to compete in the internal and external markets.
