By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Women from the Valley of Peace Laguna Farmers Cooperative and La Gracia Women’s group in the Cayo District learned how to make tomato ‘salsa casera’ in a one-day training session on Thursday.

The training was conducted at the Agro Processing Incubation Facility at Central Farm in collaboration with the Agriculture Department Cayo and the Department of Co-operatives, said the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE).

“The workshop focused on the value-adding of processed tomato by making Salsa Casera and Tomato sauce,” said MAFSE.

The Ministry of Agriculture says tomatoes are a cash crop produced yearly adding that farmers must learn to take advantage of the surplus of tomatoes by value-adding. Producing sauces that have a longer shelf life than regular tomatoes is a way of having tomato products available when production is low and is also a way to generate added income.

“Tomato production is known to have its full swing of high production within seasons, hence there is the need to provide value-adding to the tomato during this peak when there is a surplus of tomatoes in the field. It is very important that the Ministry of Agriculture continues to promote value-adding to enhance Food Security,” said MAFSE.
