Ghana: Agricultural Products Exporters Urged To Comply

The Ministry of Food and Agriculture has urged exporters of agricultural produce to comply with all regulations and support the Ministry to meet its target of creating jobs through food production. The Ministry would continue to work with the European Union Vegetable Taskforce to help coordinate affairs of compliance and meeting EU phytosanitary regulations. Some of the measures include establishing the Green Label Certification system to add value to Ghanaian produce for export, and tightening inspection of horticulture produce submitted for exports at various ports. Mr George Oduro, the Deputy Minister of Food and Agriculture in charge of Horticulture, said this in Accra at a traceability forum organised by the USAID's Improving Food Safety Systems Project (IFSSP). The USAID funded the IFSSP to develop a produce traceability system for the country's horticulture industry, strengthen the sanitary and phytosanitary compliance of the chilli and mango value chains, and assist in strengthening the coordination of certification systems. The project, which started in May 2016, would end in September 2018. Mr Oduro said the effort of the USAID funded project had contributed to lifting of the four-year ban placed on some selected vegetables entering the EU.
