Brunei’s reliance on import of fruits and vegetables increases due to insufficient local farmers to produce agriculture produce.
The issues brought forwards during a business matching session between local importing companies and farmers at Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism (MPRT) yesterday.
The session was one of the initiatives to support its Strategic Plan 2016-2020, aimed to encourage and provide opportunity for commercial importers registered with the department to procure products from local farmers.
The event also served as a platform to discuss how to improve food safety and quality through the introduction of Good Agriculture Practices (GAP) as one of the conditions required for importing fruits and vegetables into the country as well as to help local farmers find markets for their produce.
