With necessary adaptation to the business environment, the national food consumption patterns and the availability of raw materials and processing equipment in a given country, the training package can be utilized by institutions who want to expand their current programmes by specifically targeting women. The comprehensive character of the package, that is the integration of entrepreneurial awareness, management and technology training, implies that the organizing institution should involve both trainers with a management background and trainers with a food-processing technology background.

The institution should also ensure that national resource persons are brought in as guest lecturers on subjects like tax regulations, legislation concerning small-scale industries, special credit-lines, and so on. Successful women entrepreneurs should be invited to share their experiences with the participants. In addition, the institutions should consider to take the participants on field trips to sites where on-going food-processing activities can be observed.
