RBS conducts a two days training on Maize Flour Processing

Rwanda Bureau of Standards in collaboration with the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ) organizes a two days training on Maize Flour Processing. The training is being conducted at RBS Headquarters (Kicukiro-Centre, from23-24th, November 2010). Participants to the training include Maize Flour Processors from different processing units around Kigali. This training comes after intense inspection visits and advisory sessions that were conducted by RBS Quality Inspectors to different maize millers in Kigali in September. Further, those inspections were concluded by the inspection visit that was conducted by Honorable Minister of Trade and Industry together with the Director General of RBS on October 5th, 2010. During that inspection visit, the Minister urged maize millers on Hygiene and good processing practices aimed at consumer protection and business growth.


However, except some new business operators, some maize millers reported that they had had other training on maize processing but they say this training includes new information such as the concept of aflotoxins. Participants report that they are eager to learn and express their gratitude on RBS technical support to Small and Medium Enterprises.
