Event date: November 7, 2017
Location: Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso
On 7th November 2017 an Investors Forum for Aflasafe BF01 was held in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, following the product’s official registration for use in the country to protect maize and groundnuts from deadly aflatoxin. It was well attended by the private sector, bringing together farmer-based organisations, agro-input dealers, processors and traders to discuss Aflasafe commercialisation opportunities in Burkina Faso, and generated significant interest. Representatives from the Central Directorate of the Ministry of Agriculture also attended, and the event was opened by the Ministry’s Secretary General, Mr Moussa Maiga. It was hosted by the Aflasafe Technology Transfer and Commercialisation initiative (ATTC) in conjunction with the Directorate of Crop Production (DGPV).
