A Field Training Workshop for the Global Shea Alliance (GSA) aimed to develop participants’ capacity to transmit good practices in hygiene, traceability, crop protection and the safe use of pesticides to workers and/or small producers, as part of COLEACP’s Fit For Market programme. Held from 8 to 12 March, the workshop was designed for producers and extension staff (NGO Cord of GSA who had previously taken part in training on “Crop protection”, “Good hygiene practices and traceability principles”, and “Food safety management”.
GSA is a non-profit industry association with 500 members from 35 countries, including women’s groups, brands and retailers, suppliers and NGOs, that promotes industry sustainability, quality practices and standards, and demand for shea in food and cosmetics. The training was under the GSA pilot project to enable members to have another source of income outside the shea season. The training was for the women of the Tupoare cooperative who have taken up fruit and vegetable growing.
