Today at CSIR-STEPRI in Accra Ghana, relevant actors within the livestock and poultry value chain gathered to discuss the issues that the poultry and livestock food systems face in Ghana in order to reduce the import gap and support small farmers in improving their livelihoods through an increased quality of the meat produced at a competitive price. All this supported by policy regulations and market incentives.

Twenty six input providers, producers, processors, retailers, marketers, customers and researchers got together to collectively co-define the challenges that SPEAR need to respond to and design ways forward while exchanging experiences and knowledge between Ghana and Senegal researchers on protein-based feed improvements for livestock and poultry feeding.

UPM and NIBIO facilitated the workshops while CSIR-STEPRI moderated the panels and successfully led the full agenda for this first day.

Main results from the workshop so far point out at policy regulations supporting the local market, increased awareness of consumers, and improved quality of poultry feed as the main levers for change that need to be further explored under the SPEAR project.

We will keep you all posted.
