Vegetable consumption in the food systems of Burkina Faso: Identifying drivers of consumer behaviour and entry points for interventions

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

Despite the health benefits that vegetables provide, their consumption in Sub-Saharan Africa is below recommended levels. This report is part of the larger SafeVeg 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 goal of this report was to obtain insights into the vegetable consumption behaviours of urban consumers in Burkina Faso. For this purpose, a literature review was conducted – the results of which were reviewed and validated by relevant experts in the field of nutrition, health, and food safety in Burkina Faso. This report describes the results for Burkina Faso and identifies potential entry points for enhancing safe vegetable consumption.
