Food Chain aims to provide practical and appropriate information, ideas and experiences useful for small-scale food processors. Your experiences, ideas and information on production techniques, packaging, equipment, marketing and training will form the basis of future issues. Contributions are welcome in the form of articles of about 1,000 words plus line drawings and photographs where possible.
FOOD CHAIN - EDITED BY IT

Through the provision of information and training, the Intermediate Technology Development Group (IT) supports government and non-government organizations working with small-scale producers. In partnership with local organizations, IT aims to demonstrate that small-scale crop and food processing enterprises run and controlled by poor people can be profitable and sustainable.
FOOD CHAIN - A WORLDWIDE NETWORK
'Food Chain is an opportunity for you to share information on small-scale food processing with fellow workers ground the world.'
Many people have information about their work which may not be complete but could be very valuable to others. Food Chain is not the voice of IT but an opportunity for you to share this kind of information with your fellow workers. Opinions expressed in contributory articles are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the IT Food Processing Programme.
There are many publications on food processing but Food Chain is different - it is a way to exchange useful information and experiences about small-scale crop and food processing. This first issue has been distributed to more than 200 people and organizations in Africa, Asia and Latin America, and our hope is to publish articles and a directory of organizations with information and expertise in these areas for you to contact directly.
