GROCTEU is working with public and private sector Agencies to improve production and marketing within the Yam Export value chain with the objective to modernize production, handling and complying with international best practices.
We are particularly interested in the various companies achieving certification and traceability.
In the year 2018, GROCTEU, with the support from Ghana Export Promotion Authority (GEPA) registered additional farmers especially those interested in natural or organic farming. It is envisaged that in 2019 these farmers will be supplied with clean planting materials with the view to improve the shelf-life of Ghanaian yams.
GROCTEU has established direct links with FBO’s in twenty-four major yam growing districts to support farmers produce quality yams that meet buyer requirements. FBO member farmers have in the last few years expanded their production, utilizing modern planting materials development (including yam mini setts) to produce standard yams for the local retail stores (Supermarkets) and for exports.
