Agro-exporters urged to ensure compliance with international standards
2013-03-10 12:14:34 | (0 Comments)
The country’s agro-exporters have been urged to ensure their operations comply with international standards.
The appeal comes from plant and quarantine manager at the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Dalton Hastings, who says Jamaica’s trading partners are more rigorous in ensuring the safety of foods entering their markets.
Hastings says international trading partners are also demanding that exporting countries adhere to the highest safety standards.
He warns that any deviation from these safety requirements which result in unsafe food entering the trading system, can do harm to the country’s reputation.
Speaking at a technical workshop in Montego Bay recently, Hastings told exporters to see themselves as representing their country, noting that one person can tarnish the entire industry.
