Nestlé and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) are partnering to help farmers in Ghana produce high quality maize. The goal is to reduce mycotoxins, a natural, fungal contamination of crops that can damage health and lead to financial ruin for farmers.

The USAID Agricultural Development and Value Chain Enhancement (ADVANCE) programme team will train over 113,000 farmers on procedures developed by Nestlé to reduce the mycotoxins in maize to acceptable levels. It will also support them to produce maize that meets Nestlé’s quality standards.

The partnership reinforces Nestlé’s commitment to help farming communities to increase yields, crop quality and income level.

Nestlé is already helping train about 26,000 farmers in good agricultural and storage practices to manage grain quality and safety.
