MBOKA 2017 EVENT
The event is a follow up to the 2015/2016 “Good Market” initiative, organised by the Consumer Protection Association of the Gambia (CPAG) and the Association of Small Scale Enterprises in Tourism (ASSET). However, while the 2015 project had its main event centred on local safer food, the 2017 project will link consumers to buying local products which includes local food and drinks, cultural performances and art & craft products. The project will also demonstrate how “good food” is cooked by engaging the Chef’s Association of The Gambia to do cookery demonstration. The project will help to raise consumer awareness and demand for food that is produced using alternative techniques that are not damaging to the health of consumers, farmers and the wider community, or to the environment.
