Investors Forum for Aflasafe GH02
Event date: August 15, 2017
Location: Accra, Ghana
On 15th August 2017 an Investors Forum for Aflasafe GH02 was held in Accra, Ghana. It presented Aflasafe to the private sector, discussed options for commercialisation and explored business opportunities in manufacturing and distribution, generating considerable interest. During this forum, it was revealed that studies show contamination of food in Ghana by deadly aflatoxin to be very high, soaring by as much 200 times above the recommended safety limits, while Aflasafe testing in the country has been highly successful in cutting toxin levels. The event was shortly followed by the official registration of Aflasafe GH02 for use in maize and groundnuts by Ghana’s Environmental Protection Agency, setting all lights to green for commercialisation.
