Kenya has developed a food safety framework to help ascertain food safety and quality from the farm to both local and international markets, a government official revealed on Wednesday.

Willy Bett, Cabinet Secretary for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, said that once it becomes operational, the framework will help strengthen the weak links along the food supply chain in the country.

“The framework will help boost good agricultural practices and also enable traders to apply good distribution practices to improve the sub-sector that currently contributes 27 percent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP),” Bett said while opening the first fruit and vegetables conference in Nairobi.

Bett said that the framework has been completed and is awaiting approval by the cabinet to become operational.
