Nestle Grain Quality Improvement Program

2009

The Nestle Grain Quality Improvement Program trains farmers to be aware of health effects of producing and consuming aflatoxin contaminated grains and teach them simple methods of reducing aflatoxin contamination within the value chain. This helps manage risk of aflatoxin contamination in raw materials used in our factories that are used in factories.

Aflasafe Technology Transfer and Commercialization Program

2016-2020

The Aflasafe Technology Transfer and Commercialization (ATTC) Program is designed to carefully and efficiently identify strategic options for partnership with private companies or government entities, execute those partnerships and help ensure the products reach millions of farmers.  The ATTC Program is slated to cover, over a period of five years, eleven countries where Aflasafe is, or will soon, likely to be a nationally registered product: Nigeria, Kenya, Senegal, The Gambia, Zambia, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mozambique, Tanzania, Malawi and Uganda. In each country the project will be responsible for (1) developing a country strategy, (2) working with the ATTC Advisory Board to refine that strategy, (3) based on the strategy, develop partnerships with specific government and private entities interested in manufacturing and distributing Aflasafe, (4) execute technology transfer agreements with those entities, and (5) continue to provide technical support, help ensure continued product quality and monitor product usage by farmers

Peanut Varietal Development

2013-2017

The overall goal of this project is to use breeding and outreach to enhance the production, quality and marketability of peanut in PMIL target countries. The proposed research focuses on intensifying peanut production and enhancing quality by developing and improving high yielding varieties, including the release of new cultivars and the development of culturally preferred cultivars, through existing and established breeding programs.
