Upon concluding her trip, Ms. Traore recommended that a cost production study be undertaken to inform the process of improving productivity and competitiveness. She described this is as being especially important for export markets, since they are the primary source of demand. Among other recommendations, Ms. Traore encouraged CANICARNE and CONAGAN to set up an inter-professional platform for all supply chain participants to promote transparency, concerted decision-making, and profit sharing within the industry.
To follow up on these recommendations, marketing expert, Daniel Shaneyfelt, arrived to Nicaragua this week. F2F looks forward to the continued growth and accomplishments of its hosts and to the contributions of volunteers like Ms. Traore!
