The project proposes a three-year advisory services support of £351,000 to reduce the food safety risks by implementing requirements of food safety management systems and of good agriculture practices in its supply chains.
It is expected to lead to reduced risk (measured by increased scores in Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) or Global G.A.P. assessments), reduced cost and increased sales within all PRAN companies, a food processing brand in Bangladesh.
The expected end date is in June 2019, according to the International Finance Corporation, of the World Bank.
It will build the capacity of six PRAN processing companies to implement a food safety management system leading to improved performance.
The project will also strengthen PRANs extension service to build the food safety capacity of the supply chain at the supplier level (farmers and collection centers in fruit/vegetable and spices industries).
