FRESH SALONE, resumption of exports to Brussels

Fresh Salone – a Sierra Leonean fruit and vegetable production and export company, and COLEACP partner – has made its first shipment of habaneros and other ethnic vegetables (African eggplant, okra, leafy vegetables) to Brussels since the new European Directives came into force and flights were resumed post-COVID-19. This success follows several COLEACP Fit For Market programme activities in recent months, including digital training for the private sector on identification and management of false codling moth (FCM) and whitefly; and training and support to the NPPO on the new regulations, FCM identification, inspection and reporting.
