Most of the farmers in Suriname are lacking skills and knowledge in value chain management and quality and food safety issues such as GLOBALG.A.P., BRC and IFS. A fundamental uniform approach is lacking. A transition from agricultural production towards consumer driven commercial agri-business in Suriname is the goal. The quality management system needs harmonization, demand driven and in line with international developments. In this TMT-project, (female) farmers in fruit and vegetables are trained to be more competitive in the field of value chain management, implementation of GLOBALG.A.P. and other food safety standards.
