ECOWAS to primarily certify five products, including cashew and cement

(Togo First) - In line with its quality policy (ECOQUAL), ECOWAS wants to primarily certify the following five products: cashew nuts, vegetal oil, cement, water and fish.

This is to ease access to safe products and services, which meet set standards, in West Africa. According to Commodafrica, it would also allow buyers, sellers and other concerned parties to easily reach agreements regarding standard assessment processes in the region.

With regard to this last aspect, the initiative aims at ensuring that “firms meet quality standards as this would benefit not only them by making them more competitive, but also by protecting consumers and the environment,” says Yaya Niato, representative of the ECOWAS commission in charge of business promotion and private sector.

This measure arises in a context where Togo, it should be highlighted, eyes a cashew output of 24,000 tons this year.
