Training on drying fruits and wild berries for Forestry Enterprises staffs.

"Every year in my garden there are a lot of apples that I used to dry, but with the wrong technology, dried apples were black, wrinkled and had no marketable appearance, therefore I could not sell them. I stopped drying the fallen apples, they remained on the ground. This training was very useful for me, now I will start to dry the fallen apples by the right technology and I will sell them on the local market and possibly increase my income. I express my gratitude to this project for useful training", - said local farmer who participated in the JICA training program.

JICA Forestry project conducted training on drying fruits and wild berries. Training was requested by Karakol and Jeti-Oguz Forestry Enterprises (FEs) to provide the FE staff and other participants with basic knowledge on drying fruits and wild berries. Participants got acquainted with the information about food safety, the preconditions for the production facility, sanitary and hygienic standards, the HACCP standards, storage, transportation and packaging of finished products. Also information was given about the necessary documents for obtaining a declaration of conformity to the Technical Regulation of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) for the products.
