Food Packaging Evaluation

Creativity and Courage: Sudhaben’s Journey to Becoming an Entrepreneur with RUDI, an Initiative of the Self-Employed Women’s Association

This year, CITE is embarking on an evaluation of food packaging technologies with its partners at the RUDI Multi Trading Company, an initiative of Self Employed Women’s Association (SEWA). The RUDI initiative aims to provide economic opportunities to women across seven districts in Gujarat, India by training them to become “RUDIbens,” micro entrepreneurs who sell food products such as cereals, spices, and pulses to customers in their local villages.

The Self Employed Women’s Association (SEWA) Rudi Project is leading an evaluation with the support of CITE on affordable packaging technology using food grade materials that are environmentally friendly and extend the shelf-life of stored products. The packaging technology is meant for pre-packaged “kits of spices and pulses, distributed to their network of women for resale in rural communities in India."
