Mr.Altrin of Ramanathapruam district engaged in fish vending at Rameswaram. He is a physically challenged person and he established an NGO named “FEED TRUST’’ for the upliftment of physically challenged person. Initially their livelihood was with sea shell products, as it was not economically sound he had the idea to go for sea food processing and value addition. This innovative nature made him to undergo vocational training at our KVK during 2008-2009 on value addition. Thereafter he himself along with the physically challenged person started pickle production unit from prawn. He labeled the product and wrapped the bottle using polythene film packing blower. He is preparing 2000 number of prawn pickle and he is selling at the rate of Rs.320/kg. The shelf life of prawn pickle is one year. His products are being sold throughout Tamilnadu and also getting orders from abroad. He is earning an additional income of Rs.30,000/month. He is giving employment to 7 physically challenged people.
