Project / Programme Title
UNIDO - Enhancing the capacities of the mozambican food Safety and Quality insurance system for trade
Brief Project Description
The project aims at enhancing the capacities of the Mozambican food safety and quality infrastructure. Emphasis will be put on improving the national capacity for food safety analyses, certification and inspection to enhance compliance with TBT/SPS systems requirements and international standards through the delivery of internationally recognized food testing services. Focus will be placed on upgrading the food microbiology and chemical analytical laboratories housed at Agricultural Research Institute (IIAM) to support food inspection and to facilitate exports in selected agro food sectors with important trade potential specifically cashew nut, honey, fish and fruit and vegetables. Calibration services provided by INNOQ, the National Institute for Quality, standardization and methodology, will also be strengthened along with repair and maintenance activities to provide service to the food testing (analysis) laboratories as well as to the industry. The project will also facilitate the achievement of international recognition of food testing, certificates and products along the Mozambican food chain. The expected project outcome is the improved export market access of Mozambican food products. Overall, a significant increase in the amount of exports and products in the food sector certified as internationally compliant, accreditation of the food analysis and metrology laboratories will provide a good indication of the success of the project.
