In any value chain, actors must always consider end-market requirements in terms of the process, product, quality and safety (TBT and SPS measures).
TCB provides support for the development of a sustainable and targeted quality infrastructure that ensures competent institutions and guarantees that all processes and products along the value chain conform to international standards and regulations.
UNIDO’s quality value chain approach ensures that all stakeholders benefit from value chain development at each stage of the chain. The best examples of successful programmes addressing the issue of quality and standards in value chains are the cases of Burundi, Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire.
