Training-Ghana - Twenty women rice processors, mainly drawn from the Bolgatanga Municipality and Kassena-Nankana East District of the Upper East Region, have attended a three-day training workshop to broaden their knowledge on improved rice post-harvest technologies.
The training, which took place in Bolgatanga, afforded the women, who were representatives of five groups of rice processors, the opportunity to learn from their experienced colleagues in rice processing, so as to improve upon their processing skills, and the quality of the par-boiled rice they process. In an interview with the Upper East File, a resource person, Mr. Joseph Gayin of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), organisers of the programme, observed that the quality of rice processed in the region was very good, as compared to some other areas.
