For those people who are put off meat consumption by its toughness or just the appearance that is not appealing to them, the powder form of this animal source of protein could be the way to go.
Indeed, young beneficiaries of the Rural Youth Employment Support (R -YES) project are exhibiting powdered meat and eggs at the 15th National Agriculture Show taking place from July 6 to 14 at Mulindi expo grounds in Gasabo District, Kigali.
The 5-year R-YES project (June 2020 – December 2024) is funded by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) to create employment opportunities for rural youth in agribusiness.
R-YES project is implemented by a consortium led by Kilimo Trust Rwanda. Other consortium members include the Rwanda Youth in Agribusiness Forum (RYAF) and Rwanda Polytechnic (RP) – with Integrated Polytechnic Regional Colleges (IPRCs), TVETs and agribusiness industries as centres of capacity building and employment.
