Vision and goal

For small-scale farmers, producers, traders and governments in developing and least developed countries, being able to meet international food safety, animal and plant health standards and other trade requirements clears the path to global and regional markets in food and agriculture products. This creates opportunities to add value across supply chains and promote growth that is more inclusive, in turn generating employment, increasing incomes and securing people’s livelihoods.

STDF’s partnership drives catalytic SPS improvements in developing countries. Through the global platform, knowledge work and funding to develop, implement and learn from innovative pilot projects, STDF stimulates and influences sustainable improvements in SPS capacity.
