Practical Action

One good place to start to look for food and agricultural processing information is the website of Practical Action at

The information here is practical but is still based on a strong technical background. As well as product based information eg how to dry fruit, how to make pineapple vinegar and papaya pickle, the information includes more generic articles eg food poisoning and its prevention, building design and food quality control.

The articles generally provide process background, details to allow implementation, names of suppliers and links to other information.

Starting at

Links to Catagories of Information

one can navigate to a category of foods

Pickel Information

and then to specific foods

Pickled Cucumbers

at this stage there is option to give feedback and to ask questions online and the ability to download a pdf version of the information.

I would suggest we try and use this communication potential to discuss and share information and in particular localised information to expand the sometimes geographically limited info such as indredients & equipment suppliers.
