Kara Agropolis: APRODAT seeks new standards for food and agricultural products

(Togo First) - Through its agency for the promotion and development of agropoles (Aprodat), Togo seeks to adopt new standards for food and agricultural products. The project aligns with the Togo Agri-Food Transformation Project (PTA-TOGO) and, especially, the development of the Kara agropolis, supported by the African Development Bank (AfDB).

In line with the ambition, Aprodat has launched a call for tenders to pick a consultant to perform the task.

The consultant picked will assess all legislative, regulatory, and institutional texts, good practices, and existing guides, related to animal production and processing.

They will also identify and recommend draft legislative and regulatory texts, standards for implementing farm equipment, specifications, and guides to good agricultural and processing practices applicable to the poultry, fish, and vegetable sectors (rice, sesame, peanuts, and soybeans), in Togo.

All the specifications and eligibility requirements are available in the national daily newspaper (Togo - Presse N° 11384, September 28, 2022 issue).

Bids must be submitted latest by October 6, 2022.

The Kara Agropolis project is one of the country's flagship initiatives in terms of agricultural transformation in Togo. Launched in 2019, this pilot project secured CFA40 billion in financial support, from various backers, including the AfDB.
