The study aims to determine the knowledge of Akufo community in cassava flour processing, to disseminate, processing of cassava–pigeon pea fortified products and assess the consumer acceptability of the products.  A pre-test was conducted for the women; they were assessed for socio-economic status and previous knowledge in cassava processing. Six (6) cassava products were processed in participation with the trainees and the trainees women were used as panelists to sensory analysis. A post-test was also conducted after the training to assess knowledge after training. The result showed that most of the participants were in the age range of 51-60 (50%) and with farming as the dominant work (28.6%). The majority of the participants’ education status was secondary school (50%). Post-test results showed that the participants increased food processing understanding and 85.7% showed interest in processing the products disseminated for income generation.
