The Breadfruit People has announced 6 free webinars in addition to an interactive online workshop that will support breadfruit producers.
Interest in transitioning the underutilized crop from farm to market is at an all-time high. But concerns surrounding technical and operational complexity, guidance on value-added development, and proper education on the economic, cultural, environment and nutritional values of breadfruit threaten to slow the ongoing transformation.
Join the Breadfruit People, along with moderator, Dr Craig Elevitch, for discussions on how breadfruit can ultimately accelerate the evolution toward boosting domestic food production as farmers take active measures to effectively adapt to challenges in climate change and food security across the Pacific.
