Twenty-five residents of Talisay City will benefit from the skills training on meat processing sponsored by Senator Pia Cayetano, Menzi Joy Rojo, food sector in-charge of Technology and Livelihood Development Center, claimed yesterday.
Rojo said the beneficiaries will be trained in making pork ham, pork tocino, pork chorizo, and pork luncheon meat on Oct. 11 at the TLDC.
She said the skills training will enable the beneficiaries to make homemade products from which they can earn additional income.
The food production skill to be taught do not require a large capital so participants can immediately start a food processing business, Rojo said.
The TLDC also assists local food producers and helps them market their products, she said.
Other services offered at the TLDC are food laboratory facilities, shrink packaging and vacuum packaging.*LTG
