Warehouse Inspection, Certification and Gsoko training
EAGC staff in Tanzania were trained on the inspection and certification process of warehouses as per the EAGC criteria.
EAGC has been carrying out warehouse inspection services for members and non-members in the Eastern Africa Region. The inspection process is key as it enables both EAGC and the warehouse operators to establish the condition of the storage units that hold grains and grain commodities to ensure that grain quality does not deteriorate and the grain will be tradable and fit for human consumption when the trading season begins.
The team was trained on the initial steps that are required for inspection and the importance of each step as well as the process involved in close monitoring of the warehouse even after the inspection and certification process.
The team identified the gaps in the previous inspection activities that they had conducted in the past and also shared their experiences from the field. They brainstormed around some of the issues and challenges faced during such activities including the fees structure and offering value for money for EAGC members through such initiatives to ensure more grain trade and other opportunities through EAGC warehouse certification.
