MoU with GCX in Ghana
Event date: August 21, 2019
Location: Accra, Ghana
On 21st August 2019 in Accra, Ghana, the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) and Ghana Commodity Exchange (GCX) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two organisations. The MoU aims to improve food safety in Ghana by tackling aflatoxin in food – both a threat to the health of Ghanaians and a serious dampener to trade. The two organisations committed to collaborate in a range of ways, including advocacy, building capacity on aflatoxin and its control, and raising awareness.
