COMESA supports SMEs in local hotel food supply

28 January 2015

The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa [Comesa] Business Council is implementing a food safety programme that will enable small and medium enterprises to supply local food to key hotels in the region. In her keynote address during the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Comesa business council and the hotels in Kampala recently, the council's chairperson, Dr Amany Asfour, said the project would target selected suppliers whose capacity could be strengthened.

"Sourcing food and drinks locally is now an established strategy for many in the hospitality industry and the practice will continue to expand into other areas of procurement," said Amany.

"Encouraging local procurement sourcing in food supply and other areas along the value chain greatly contributes to local job creation and sustainability of the supplier chains," he added.
