Togo: IITRA to get a new quality control laboratory

(Togo First) - In Agoè Cacaveli, Lomé, works are ongoing to build a modern quality control laboratory just beside the Togolese Institute for Agricultural Research (ITRA).

The information was disclosed to Togo First last Friday by a source at ITRA. “We are building a laboratory for more precise analysis, and quality control of agro-food products,” the source said.

Construction works which are expected to cost nearly XOF100 million will be financed by the West Africa Agricultural Productivity Initiative (PPAAO), the Youth Employment and Insertion Support Program (PAEIJ-SP) and the Risk-sharing-based Agricultural Financing Incentive Mechanism (MIFA).

The new laboratory will be equipped with the tools capable of delivering top standard services to public authorities and consumers. These tools, should, according to the same source, cost XOF200 million.
