Global fruit production is steadily increasing, especially tropical fruits such as pineapple, mango, papaya, litchi, and dragon fruits. Fruits are diverse and rich in delightful colors, flavors and smells that please consumers, and rich in vitamins and nutrients that help prevent many human diseases. However, more than half of the global population cannot consume enough fruits to obtain these benefits.
Can global/ local GAP certification enhance market opportunities for dragon fruit and other tropical fruits? What are the cost and benefits? What are the challenges and strategies?
FFTC is organizing a 2021 DFNet Workshop entitled “Global / Local GAP Certification to Enhance Market Opportunities - Challenges and Strategies”, in partnership with the Taiwan Agricultural Research Institute (TARI) and Tai-Chung District Agriculture Research Extension Station (TCDARES) of Taiwan’s Council of Agriculture, and DFNet partners. Experts from the Asia-Pacific will be invited to share their views from the global, regional, and national perspectives.
We are cordially inviting all tropical fruit growers, academic and industry players, and enthusiasts to join this video conference. We sincerely welcome your participation. For workshop information and registration, please click on the link: sites.google.com/fftc.org.tw/2021dfnetworkshop
