Food Safety and Plant Health in Ghana - Analysis of the Sanitary and Phytosanitary

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

Ghana is a signatory of the WTO agreement on Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) measures. This international agreement sets out a framework for food safety as well as plant health. While food safety is important for both national as well as international trade, phytosanitary compliance can especially be a big obstacle for international trade. The current weakness of the sanitary and phytosanitary compliance system for Ghanaian vegetables might hamper development of the sector in the years to come. This study assesses the current food safety and plant health status of the vegetable sector in Ghana, determines bottlenecks and provides recommendations for improvement of the food safety and phytosanitary system of the vegetable sector in Ghana.
