Vegetable consumption in the food system of Benin: Identifying drivers of consumer behaviour and entry point for interventions

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

Despite its health benefits, vegetable consumption in Sub-Saharan Africa is below recommended levels. This report is part of a larger project, aiming to pilot and scale innovative approaches within the food systems of Benin, Mali and Burkina Faso to improve consumption of safe vegetables. The aim of this report is to obtain insights into the vegetable consumption behaviour of urban consumers in Benin. For this purpose, a literature review was conducted. Results were reviewed and validated by relevant experts in the field of nutrition, health, and food safety in Benin. This was important as most relevant literature referred to the larger context of West Africa. This report describes the results for Benin and identifies potential entry points for enhancing the consumption of safe vegetables.
