Togo records a surplus of 70,000 tons of grains for 2019-2020 campaign

(Togo First) - An average surplus of 70,000 tons of grains (corn, sorghum, millet, local rice) was recorded in the 2019-2020 campaign. This was reported by the managing director of Togo’s agency for food security (ANSAT), Ouro-Koura Agadazi. 

Regardless of the surplus, says ANSAT’s head, “many grain production areas currently have stocks that have not been distributed.” There is, for example, Sokodé in the northeast and Elavagnon in Eastern Mono. 

This situation could negatively affect producers, according to the agency. It hence urges authorities to“take measures to help them easily deliver their products on the market,” at the risk of threatening food security.
