Already more than 100 eligible projects from 23 countries

Launched officially on December 6th at the ACP house, the Fit For Market (FFM) Programme has already received more than 100 requests for support from 23 countries in Africa and the Caribbean.

More than 60% of the requests were made by companies and producer groups (see the infography). They concern the fruit and vegetable sector and, more specifically, support for the sustainability of production and business management systems, as well as food safety and phytosanitary compliance.

This dynamic will accelerate with the successive missions carried out by the COLEACP team in the countries of Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific. Below, find the geographical distribution of the requests for support.
