PRESS STATEMENT: ADOPT QUALITY STANDARDS AND CONFORMITY ACROSS THE AGRICULTURE VALUE CHAIN FOR KENYA TO ATTAIN FOOD SECURITY
Posted on: 16-03-2015

2/03/15 .. Players in the agriculture sector have been called upon to adopt standards across the value chain from farm to fork for the country to attain food security.
Speaking during celebrations to mark the African Day of Standardizations, Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Industrialization and Enterprise Development, Dr. Wilson Songa, said agriculture is the largest employer in Kenya, contributing 25.3 percent of GDP hence the need to employ accepted standards across the value chain.
The PS noted that standards play a critical role in sustainable development, competitiveness, and lowering production costs.
The African Day of Standardization is an annual celebration held to commemorate the birth and foundation of African Organization for Standardization by the African Union in 1977. Its main objective is to promote sustainable development in Africa through Standardization and Conformity Assessment. This year’s theme is “The Role of Standards in Promoting Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security in Africa.”
