As part of the ‘Better Training for Safer Food’ program of the European Commission, NSF Euro Consultants has played a leading role in setting up a European training strategy regarding the food and feed legislation, the legislation on the health and wellbeing of animals and phytosanitary regulations, ever since 2009. NSF Euro Consultants is organizing training sessions on food safety for over 3000 European and non-European inspectors. These training sessions have to ensure the homogenous, effective and objective use of control methods in the member states, in order to enable companies of the food industry to compete at an equal level. Some training programs help non-European staff to understand the import conditions that are imposed by the European Union and clarify which mandatory inspections they have to go through before the goods are shipped to the European Union.
Morocco has been granted a budget within the « Millennium Challenge Account » which aims to increase the economic growth. The orchard fruit project funded under the MCA-Morocco program provides for the development of fertile adapted fruit varieties. NSF Euro Consultants used its expertise to improve the fruitage and sustainability of the phoenicicole sector (date palms) at various levels of the value chain. This was achieved by setting up in-field intervention units and synergies, with as corollary support and technical assistance, direct supervision, management, training, advice and the necessary expertise to bring all initiated actions within the selected parameters (palmeries) to a successful end.
