Kenya lined up for slice of Sh3bn deal

Kenya will benefit from Sh3.2 billion (32.5 million euros) released by the European Commission to train African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) farmers on food safety as hygiene concerns take centre stage. This is the second phase of Pest Initiative Programme (PIP), whose objective is to support exporters from ACP countries to comply with the European Union’s sanitary standards for fresh fruits and vegetables.  The initial phase supported 85 beneficiaries in Kenya including export companies, smallholder support organisations, service providers and public sector bodies. Mr Pietro Nardi from the European Commission delegation said in spite of the success of the first phase, challenges are still ahead. He said the growing concern of European consumers towards environmental and ethical issues translates into constant upgrading of rules and regulations related to distribution of fresh products.
