The preparation of value-added products is mostly confined to household/village or with in the easy access of farm women. Because the majority of the raw materials are available in the village, it is ideal to start as a rural or village enterprise. As a result of this value addition, rural residents would have a lot of job opportunities. The under employed force in rural areas can be profitably utilized. In this context there is a greater scope to go for value added products or processed food products or ready to eat products which can take care of effective utilization of time by the women folk.
