Food processing training for women of B3aqleen


Al Farah Social Association, jointly with the Progressive Women Union – Shuf District and Food Heritage Foundation, organized last week a training course on food procession in B3aqleen under the supervision of expert trainers. The purpose is to empower women economically and create jobs, in addition to familiarizing them with required safety and quality standards. Around 20 women from the towns and villages of Manasef participated in the 3-day event during which they learned techniques to dry and preserve veggies and fruits, make food the traditional way (mouneh) and prepare healthy meals. On the occasion, agriculture engineer, Farah Abi Mosleh, from Al Farah Association, said the session is part of a series of activities launched in partnership with different societies with the aim to achieve self-sufficiency. She underlined the importance of similar workshops in creating jobs for women in food manufacturing, particularly the traditional Lebanese panty. Likewise, the head of the Progressive Women Union, Manal  Saeed, stressed the importance of the training course in introducing women to the criteria of food quality and safety in the preparation of mouneh recipes. To note, training will extend during the coming weeks to cover various other regions. (NNA, July 28, 2020)
