As part of its Fit for Market programme, COLEACP organised training in Ghana for technical and extension staff, to develop their capacity to pass on good practices in hygiene, traceability, crop protection and safe use of pesticides to workers and/or small-scale producers. Trainees were those responsible for production, pest control methods and phytosanitary treatments, as well as quality traceability managers and packaging managers of horticultural companies. Participants built on previous COLEACP training on Crop Protection and Safe Use of Pesticides and/or Food Safety Management. This training was based on COLEACP’s Field Training Workshop method. The method, designed in a simple and imaginative way around specific topics, helps trainees understand the good practices they need to employ in production and processing to ensure their produce complies with standards and regulatory requirements.
