COLEACP is working to strengthen the gender dimension of our programme activities in recognition of the key position played by women in the ACP fruit and vegetable sector. Golden Exotics kindly hosted a visit by Morag Webb (Special advisor at COLEACP) to their farm and packing facilities. Of particular interest were: • The Sexual Harassment Policy • The BOHESI project, and specific gender-based risk assessments • Adaptations made to working practices and infrastructure to make employment in the banana industry more accessible and attractive to women. The main take-away was the manner in which gender is being rolled out within the company CSR activities not in the context of any particular social audit, but because the company sees genuine evidence of the business case.
