The executive director, who said that participants were taken through comprehensive training on fish processing techniques, added that they were equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to add value to their produce and tap into lucrative markets.

“Following the success of the inaugural workshop, ARMTI continued its momentum with a second training session on “Agricultural Produce Value Chain Skill Enhancement for Management of Input/Production and Marketing.”.

“Held from January 29 to February 2, 2024, at the ARMTI Campus, this workshop delved into the intricacies of the agricultural value chain, providing participants with invaluable insights into efficient input management, production optimisation, and strategic marketing techniques.
