Kenya picked for new EU food safety training

Fish, fresh produce and tea firms are set to benefit from a new European Union support meant to safeguard markets by meeting safety rules.The project, whose delegation is in Nairobi, is run by EDES, an EU-funded trade programme that helps developing states to strengthen and adjust regulatory regimes to meet stringent quality demands of European markets.“Kenya was picked as a test country in the region because of its long association and high volume of trade with EU,” Marie Josee, EDES’s head of information and communication, said in Nairobi .EU regulations on food safety have undergone many tests with the latest farm-to-fork traceability demand, putting pressure on developing states to adjust their sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) control systems to match the European standards.To Kenya, EDES programme comes as an assurance of the EU’s continued interest in its produce at a time anxiety is running high over the future of its trade relations with Kenya after the East African Community failed to sign a binding preferential trade pact on schedule.
