CABI supports increase in vegetable production and consumption in Kenya and Ethiopia

CABI has joined forces with the World Vegetable Centre and SNV to help increase healthy vegetable production and consumption in Kenya and Ethiopia as part of a €6m five-year project funded by the Ikea Foundation.

Through the ‘Veggies 4 Planet & People (V4P&P)’ program, CABI is spending the rest of this year in consolidating and documenting information from the databases and other sources to provide expert advice and insights on vegetable pest problems and farmer practices in Kenya and Ethiopia.

A healthy diet of fruit and vegetables provides a source of vitamins and minerals needed to maintain the overall health of people but is particularly important in helping to prevent obesity, heart disease and cancers.
