Area of Practice:
Food Safety and
Quality Assurance

Ensuring all actors across the value chain apply best practices in maintaining food safety

Much of the food supplied to meet the growing population’s demand will be produced and processed in developing countries. In order to capitalize on these opportunities, developing countries need to strengthen their food safety and food quality practices.

We take a holistic approach, building the capacity of actors across the supply chain, from pre-production through harvest, post-harvest handling and processing. We work with food companies to upgrade food safety and quality assurance systems and food product specifications to meet market requirements and tap unmet consumer demand. 

We leverage expertise from Land O’Lakes, Inc., a food industry leader in the implementation of the globally accepted quality assurance programs.
