Technical Visits represent a Significant Support for MSME’s participating in the Project.
Tegucigalpa, August 23, 2008. - The technical field advisors (TAC) of the Added Value Project continue paying periodic visits to the 60 small enterprises being benefited by the Project, assisting them with their knowledge and experience.
The TAC´s visit enterprises nationwide, providing useful recommendations to improve both the production processes and the final products.
The most common issues being addressed by the entrepreneurs are food safety innovations, since the market is currently demanding reliable products, and an adequate processing is necessary to avoid any possible risk of food transmitted disease.
It is also important to consider that we are actually living in a globalized economy, with foreign competition invading our national markets by offering better prices; therefore, these agro-industrial MSME’s must become more competitive by obtaining the appropriate technical assistance to improve their products and by offering high quality goods to consumers.
Beneficiaries are very grateful for the job performed by the Added-Value specialists, and mainly for the assistance granted by MCA-Honduras through information and training received, which are not often available for them in view of the high costs involved.
