EU-project on quality improvement
Launch of European project on quality in African and Caribbean countries
The PIP, the Pesticide Initiative Progam, has recently initiated a global quality program on the quality of fresh fruits from African and Caribbean countries. The project, launched with EU-funding, will be executed by Agro Eco-Louis Bolk Institute among others. The overall objective is to train companies on quality management in tropical fruits like pine apple, mango and banana. By the end of the project, companies will be HACCP-certified.
