Sharing responsibility for food quality and safety in horticultural production from developing countries

Purpose

To assist small scale growers in developing countries to gain or maintain international market access by meeting food safety and quality requirements

Objectives

  • to improve dialogue between standard setting (retailers and consumers) and standard implementing actors from the South (growers and exporters),
  • to assist in harmonising and interpreting existing standards in order to include the needs of small-scale growers, and
  • to identify first steps, proposals and policies for increasing small scale growers share in export production (e.g. access to information, technology gaps, certification).

Strategy

A workshop is organised to provide the opportunity for representatives of relevant European institutions, NGO's, the private sector, and partners from developing countries to identify a common strategy to assist small scale growers in developing countries to gain or maintain international market access by meeting food safety and quality requirements.
