Welcome to the September’s member updates.
This month, EAGC has made notable progress pursuant to its vision of being “the leading voice for the grain industry in Africa” through its four key functions; Structuring grain Trade Systems, provision of market information, trade policy and advocacy work as well as capacity building through the Grain Business Institute with the aim of delivering trade, more trade and better grain trade.
This year, we have hosted the 8th Africa Grain Trade Summit on the 3rd to 5th October 2019, at Sarova Whitesand’s Hotel in Mombasa.
The summit brought together over 250 high level grain value chain stakeholders across the world to discuss and commit to programs, investments and policies to transform grain trade across the continent. I sincerely thank you all for taking part in the summit either as a delegate, speaker, exhibitor or sponsor. Your contribution has positively impacted the outcome of the summit and will be instrumental in transforming grain trade in the continent.
Having been on the forefront in the development of Hermetic Storage Technologies (HSTs) Standards in the East African Community to cushion our members from counterfeits and inferior hermetic storage products, I am happy to inform you that the standards have been officially launched after being gazetted in Kenya for implementation in an effort to address post-harvest losses.
