Taiwan Provides 50 Farm Toilets To Banana Farmers

Press Release:- On March 25th, 2019 some fifty(50) banana farmers were the proud recipients of farm toilets from the Taiwan Technical Mission.

The toilets which form part of an ongoing support program by the Taiwan and the Ministry of Agriculture, designed to help banana farmers obtain Global Gap certification and gain access to  the international banana market.

In a brief handing over ceremony,  Chief of Taiwan Technical Mission Mr. Mario Cheng recognized the full worth of  the farmers efforts and improvement to the work environment.

He emphasized his Mission was pleased to make a small contribution to help the farmers obtain certification for the health, dignity and well-being of all, through sustainable sanitation.

Certification, he notes will enable the farmers to not only sell their fruits on the international markets  but more importantly will help improve their income, change their lives and the lives of their families.

Also addressing the ceremony was Project Manager Kerde Severin of the Banana Productivity Improvement Project.

Mr. Severin thanked the Taiwan for the support it has provided to the Ministry of Agriculture in general and the banana industry in particular. The presentation of the toilets he said was another expression of the Government of Taiwan’s warm-heartedness.

The ceremony which took place at La Caye, was attended by the technical staff of the ICDF and  Banana Productivity Improvement Project and banana farmers.
