Togo: Organic Soybean Future Discussed in Atakpame

(Togo First) - Stakeholders of the Togolese organic soybean sector and the country’s financial partners and institutions held a meeting on September 6 to discuss the sector’s challenges and how to tackle them. 

The meeting was hosted in Atakpame, 150 km from Lomé, the capital. It was organized by Jonction de Croissance Agricole of Togo (JCAT) and the FAO.

The roundtable, according to Oyetounde Djiwa, FAO’s director in Togo, enabled the various stakeholders and partners to appraise and laud how the organic soybean sector is organized. The participants, Djiwa added, also took the opportunity to look at the new incentives that Europe set up to import more organic products.

Togo produced 120,000 tons of organic soybeans in 2022. Last June, the country drew a new five-year strategy to bolster local processing, boost exports, and reinforce human resources in the sector.
