Management and control - essential features for continued access by small-scale growers to EU fresh produce markets
|Coordinating organisation:||Agribusiness Management Associates (U) Ltd|
To generate and promote new knowledge into how national innovation systems can be mobilised to sustain uptake and adoption of CPH knowledge for the benefit of the poor.
Fresh produce exports generate income for thousands of families in Africa. Strict food safety regulations and standards in the EU are depriving these families of their livelihood. Simply providing training and transferring European systems does not work. This project builds on the success of R8271, by supporting small-scale growers with a cost effective management system and institutional framework to attain EUREPGAP. The concept integrates into the national system and encourages SSG's to take ownership. The current work aims to demonstrate that the Zambian system can work in Uganda, which has a less well developed export sector and institutional framework.
