TENDER: Ochratoxin A and Pesticide Residues in Green Coffee
Assessing Competence of the EAC Partner States’ Food Laboratories for Analysis of Ochratoxin A and Pesticide Residues in Green Coffee
One of the key objectives of MARKUP is to improve harmonization of standards for the MARKUP priority value chains of coffee, tea, cocoa, spices, oilseeds and horticultural produce and their processed commodities. Interventions to achieve this objective are implemented through the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
MARKUP is supporting the EA Standards Technical Committees (EAS TCs) to develop harmonized standards and to upgrade the existing EA standards of these priority commodities with the current requirements set by the Codex Alimentarius Commission (Codex) and the EU.
It is in this context that GIZ wishes to engage an expert to identify validated or accredited methods for sampling and analysis of green coffee for OTA and pesticide residues and assess the competence of the EAC Partner States’ national food laboratories to apply the methods.
