In anticipation of the start of the mango export season in Guinea, COLEACP organised a workshop for discussion and exchange on the 2021 mango season in partnership with the National Directorate for Plant Protection, Stored Foods and Technical Control (DNPVDS-CT).
This workshop took place on Monday 12 April. It provided an opportunity to review the integrated management measures, the phytosanitary inspection and certification system and the precautionary measures detailed in the mango dossier submitted to the European Union, in the context of the new phytosanitary rules that will come into force in December 2019 (EU2016/2031).
In a second stage, the meeting considered the impact of Covid-19 on the Guinean horticultural sector; the measures to be put in place from orchard to export to ensure the safety of operators; and the requirements of GLOBALG.A.P. certification in relation to the pandemic.
This activity is supported by the Fit For Market SPS programme, implemented by COLEACP in the framework of development cooperation between the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) and the European Union.
