The “Better Training for Safer Food” initiative is financed by the Directorate General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE) of the European Commission to improve the knowledge of the beneficiary countries on Food Safety and SPS. The project goals are threefold: i) Strengthening SPS capacities of third countries with emphasis on the application of international standards and EU food legislation; ii) Ensuring that food, plant and animal products exported to EU are safe for EU consumers; and iii) Reducing poverty by developing the capacity of the private sector of third countries to export safe food, plant and animal products to the EU. AETS tasks are to plan, implement and report on the organisation of regional training workshops and technical assistance called ‘Sustained Training Mission’.
