GLOBALG.A.P in partnership with local partners organizes Tour Stop Conferences which provide excellent platforms to create awareness of food safety standards for different value chains.
The Tour Stops also provide a forum for actors along the value chains to engage on pertinent issues to enhance marketing of their food products. Next year, GLOBALG.A.P in partnership with Rootooba www.rootooba.com is organizing the Crop Tour Stop conference to be held on 28th-30th March 2023 in Nairobi, Kenya.
The aim of the Tour Stop is to raise awareness on the key food safety issues along crop value chains and how to meet safety standards of products to ease penetration into the markets thus boosting overall business performance. Through the initiative, pertinent issues in the East African region with potential to facilitate viable, safe trade will be highlighted.
Rootooba is an agricultural based technical support provider and is approved GLOBALG.A.P. Registered Trainer. In 2019, it partnered with GLOBALG.A.P to hold the 1st successful Crops Tour Stop in Kenya, which was hosted at KALRO Headquarters.
