FAO supports expansion of Seamoss sector

On 22 June 2023, a Stakeholder Validation Workshop was convened through the support of the ‘Resilient Aquaculture’ sub-project of the Mexico-CARICOM-FAO Initiative “Cooperation for Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience in the Caribbean”, and a project of FAO’s Technical Cooperation Programme on Promoting Competitive, Sustainable, and Resilient National Value Chain Development in Grenada, in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and Lands, Fisheries and Cooperatives. The workshop brought together some 42 stakeholders in person and online. These stakeholders from relevant government agencies, seamoss farmer cooperatives, as well as agro-processors, retailers, exporters, and extension personnel sought to validate a strategic plan for upgrading and developing Grenada’s seamoss industry.
