Launch of the Aflasafe Technology Transfer and Commercialisation initiative (ATTC)
Event date: December 1, 2016
Location: Ibadan, Nigeria
The Aflasafe Technology Transfer and Commercialisation initiative (ATTC) was officially launched on 1 December 2016 at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) headquarters in Ibadan, Nigeria. More than 100 participants attended from farmers’ organisations, research institutions, ministries of agriculture, regional economic communities and the private sector. Through strategic business partnerships, ATTC aims to get Aflasafe into the hands of as many farmers as possible and so to drastically cut aflatoxin contamination in food across Africa. It seeks to rapidly increase Aflasafe production, transfer the technology to companies and organisations in each country, and ensure sustainable, independent manufacture and supply for many years to come.
