Netherlands: Q-Point to start activities in Mozambique

Q-Point, an independent Dutch advisory company specialized in food safety, will go ahead with two projects in the field of agro food processing, water management and biotechnology in Mozambique. Both projects, starting in November as part of the Nuffic/Niche program, will run for 4 years.

One of the missions will benefit from the participation of the ISPM- Higher Polytechnic Institute in the Manica province. The main goal of the combined effort is to stimulate agricultural development in the region, a development wanting due to inexperience and a lack of technology. Two courses on both Bachelor and Master level will be provided for to tackle the problem.


The second project will see close collaboration with the Instituto Superior Politécnico de Gaza (ISPG). ISPG is a newly-established polytechnic academy in the Chokwe District. The district is dealing with heavy crop losses. Here as in most regions, the losses can be blamed on a consistent lack of qualified workers and knowledge. Q-Point will try to turn the tide by introducing proper food processing and water management.

Both projects will receive further support by CBE International in Amsterdam, the Free State University of South Africa and Egerton University in Kenya. Other participants include Aquator Groene Ruimte and IPC Groen & Ruimte.
