Abstract

Quality has become a key aspect for establishing international market access and improving competitiveness of (smallholder) producers in developing countries. This is especially the case for perishable tropical food products. This chapter explores the key quality issues of the Beninese pineapple sector. An analysis is made of the constraints and opportunities for improving pineapple quality at production, processing, trading and post-harvest levels. The chapter concludes with recommendations on how various actors in the institutional environment of Benin, such as governmental agencies and NGOs, can contribute to quality improvements of the pineapple sector.
