One of the key services of SEED is technology transfer. SEED has successfully transferred these techniques through workshops, demonstrations and training programmes. SEED has been helping the unemployed women and youth through training-cum-production centres (three) to establish micro enterprises.

Our efforts of Solar Dryer and Food processing technologies resulted in organising 40 workshops in Andhra Pradesh, 20 training programmes for women and youth covering 1,000 trainers and entrepreneurs and installation of 160 solar dryers of demonstration and commercial models in 12 states in India.

The supplying of solar dryers is always backed up by training in demonstration of techniques of processing of vegetables and fruits for short term and long term programmes in the villages, where the commercial dryers are installed. The training covers, hygiene and cleanliness, pretreatments of raw materials, chemical preservation method, processing, testing and packing for processed products. In house training is also conducted for the wider and special variety of products processing for NGO’s working in Rural areas and for Rural youth and women.
