The global trade in food products has tripled in the last decade with enormous impact on both the health of populations and the economies of nations. In these long, complex supply chains, it is vital that food is of good quality and is kept safe for consumption when it reaches the consumer. This is where MARKUP comes in.
“I’ve come away with so much to think about, lots of connections with financers and capital investors that I hadn’t heard of until now.”
To celebrate two years of MARKUP, the programme just published '2 Years of MARKUP – Achievements and Impact'. Additionally, a new policy brief outlines effective implementation of the harmonised criteria for enhancing intra-EAC trade of pre-packaged foods.
“This will unlock the potential of SMEs to participate effectively in harmonisation and setting standards.”
