Guyana: CDB approves US$280k grant for food traceability system

The Caribbean Development Bank has approved a US$280,906 grant to implement a food traceability system designed to boost the export of leafy greens and pineapples in Guyana.
The CDB said the pilot will lay the foundation for a traceability system throughout the agro-food value chain while collecting insights on the system's impact and providing solutions to mitigate risks.
CDB said it entered into a partnership with the Guyana government because of the vital role agriculture plays in driving economic expansion, generating employment opportunities, and fostering food security at both the local and regional levels.
