CABI is a knowledge organization, so we apply knowledge solutions. We introduce and facilitate sustainable best agricultural practices, and provide information at every level in the supply chain. We advise governments on quarantine issues, and help farmers to understand the needs of global markets.
We also build capacity to allow knowledge to be translated into sustainable, practical actions, through skills based training and improving links between producers, processors, manufacturers and retailers.
The work we do enables:
Smallholder farmers and producer groups to increase their incomes, by growing better quality crops and accessing markets to trade their products.
Manufacturers and retailers to secure a reliable supply of quality assured, sustainable produce, cut costs by reducing waste, and protect their brand by providing safe, affordable food.
National economies to grow, as exporting countries develop their trade potential.
Governments to meet their objectives in economic performance, employment and livelihoods.
Consumers to buy better quality, safer food that offers good value.
Our trade and market access activities are focused in three key areas:
• Biosecurity and SPS (sanitary and phytosanitary)
• Supply chain support
• Crop management
