Food safety is a growing global concern; specifically so in Ghana. Unfortunately, farmers and consumers in Ghana find it challenging to identify genuine farm inputs and quality food produce. This is due to poor traceability systems in the agricultural sector. The current situation gives rise to a mired of food safety related issues.
