Importation de Royaume-Uni vers Gambie
10/11/2021 - Gambie
I participated as SheTrades Gambia with a business. After the training, I was ready to expand my business and commence exporting . As part of the requirement , I have registered with the Food Safety and Quality Authority of The Gambia for the past 6 months to obtain a certificate for the exports of my products. The institution promised to visit my businesses to do an audit in other to issue my business with the certificate. Up to today, my business has not been visited for the issuance of the certificate." This prevents my business from exportation, even though I have signed contracts with some customers to provide agro food products
