Sun Dried Fruit & Natural Fruit Juice Project. Advise on fruit processing/packaging, cane sugar processing and start-up funding
We have a group of 30 girls that have been training in business skills. They would like to package sun dried fruits and natural fruit juice. The needed equipment and initial input is $3000. We need volunteers to help us raise funds for this project. We would also like to get volunteers with expertise in processing and packaging of sun-dried fruits. Uganda has a wide variety of fruits which come seasonally and become excess, leading to waste of those that cannot be consumed immediately. Most of these varieties can be dried and used later. Most of the fruits also can be processed into juice and sweetened using either other fruit sugar or raw cane sugar from chewing sugar cane. We would like to get volunteers who know have knowledge about the raw cane sugar extracting machines common in Hawaii and the Philippines.
