Fruits and vegetables


    ITC endeavours to improve the quality and quantity of fruits and vegetables exported by developing countries. We create strategic development plans outlining the status of the fruit and vegetable market in a country and how to overcome the challenges of reaching export goals. We work with farmers, exporters, importers, trade support institutions and policymakers, and provide them with training and advice.

    We work in Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia, Guinea, Kenya, Tanzania, Myanmar, Viet Nam, Laos and the East African Community (EAC), the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) regions.

    We provide training and capacity building on GlobalGap Certification as well as ISO/Hazard Analysis and Critical Control System (HACCP) Certification, designed to protect food safety and guarantee the safety of the global food chain.

    At the trade level, we provide training on export market requirements as well as physical and virtual trade fair preparations, targeted at sector associations and individual exporters.

    For micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) we provide:

    • Training on export market requirements targeted at exporters
    • Training, organization and support on trade fair preparations
    • Organization of study tours 
    • Organization of inward buyers’ tours
