State Govt to arrange for training in latest tech for food processing, agriculture
The Science & Technology and Biotechnology Department has tied up with the State technology university, MAKAUT (formerly known as WBUT) to train owners of small businesses (MSME sector) to use the latest technology for food processing and preservation, and for agriculture too.
In this connection, it has been decided by the government to build biotechnology parks in different corners of the Bangla, in places where farming happens on a large scale.
There are many food processing businesses in the State but not all possess the latest knowledge, for example, regarding preservation of fruits and vegetables, fish, etc. the lack of adequate knowledge is also preventing exports in some cases.
Thus, the decision of the government to set up training programmes will immense help the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) sector.
