Improving Product Quality and Market Access for Shea Butter Originating from Sub-Saharan Africa (C 2007)

The project improves product quality standards for sheanut and shea butter through the establishment of a regionally-consistent and internationally-recognised product certification system, technical development in product quality control, commercialisation and marketing. The project establishes and maintains channels of communication, networking and exchange of technical and market information between producers and other stakeholders of the shea sector, including national institutions and industry. Improved product quality will enhance the total productivity of the shea resource, and will be sustained over time on the basis of increased returns to producers, through the establishment of product quality management systems and product certification.
