INNOVAGRI (Mauritius): Support for the implementation of a sanitary quality manual

INNOVAGRI Ltd is a fruit and vegetable – onion, potato, carrot, pepper, tomato, pumpkin, pineapple, passion fruit – production company based in Rivière des Anguilles, Mauritius. The company operates a 55-hectare farm with 2500 m2 of greenhouses. All the fruit and vegetables produced, estimated at around 3,000 tonnes for 2019, are currently sold on the local market. With a view to continuous improvement and at the request of its main client, INNOVAGRI wished to set up a sanitary quality management system that complied with the requirements of GLOBALG.A.P.

On 27 April 2022, GLOBALG.A.P. launched version 6 of its Integrated Farm Assurance standard, which advocates a holistic approach across all subjects that contribute to responsible agricultural practices. An Ivorian COLEACP expert, familiar with the new version, recently travelled to Mauritius to train INNOVAGRI’s staff, to visit the production plots, to update the remote diagnosis carried out in 2021 due to COVID-19, and to assist staff in complying with the requirements of the standard. The mission went very well, with excellent collaboration between the company’s staff and the COLEACP expert, who continues to assist the company remotely regarding compliance.

This activity is supported by the Fit For Market SPS programme, implemented by COLEACP as part of the development cooperation between the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) and the European Union.
