If producers can improve the quality and the safety of their fresh fruits and vegetables, they stand a much better chance of selling them to wider markets, be they wholesalers, supermarkets or export markets.
If producers can improve the quality and the safety of their fresh fruits and vegetables, they stand a much better chance of selling them to wider markets, be they wholesalers, supermarkets or export markets. Food quality is an increasingly important issue for consumer protection, and hence an essential marketing criterion, while safety is a key issue for a growing range of markets. The FAO has a long track record of helping developing countries through technical cooperation projects and consultancies to develop food safety policies and to build local capacities for producing better quality fresh fruits and vegetables. As part of this policy, it has now published a manual on CD-ROM, aimed at trainers in the public and private sectors, who are responsible for capacity building, research, project formulation, projects and programmes for ensuring quality and safety of fresh fruits and vegetables. The contents were tried and tested at workshops held in several Latin American countries, and the manual incorporates recommendations and contributions resulting from these sessions.
