FOOD EDUCATION IN AFRICA.
Androulla Vassiliou, the EU's health commissioner, launched a new initiative at a high-level conference in Addis Ababa, on 3 April: Better training for safer food in Africa - BTSF-Africa'. Over the next two years, BTSF-Africa will enable 10 million to be used to finance capacity building activities. Launched in 2005, the BTSF programme aims to provide training for EU and third-country officials in charge of checking that EU rules on food and animal feed, the health and wellbeing of animals and plant health are properly applied. In this regard, the European Commission and the African Union Commission (AUC) will coordinate planned actions for public and private players in the sector.
