The COMESA Business Council (CBC) seeks to strengthen the technical capacity of enterprises so that they can actively participate in Regional and Global Trade.  CBC is implementing the EDF RECAMP programme, which considers the need to ensure the inclusiveness of Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) into value chains at firm through training on the standards and facilitating the integration of the SMEs into the competitive supply chain network of corporate companies and key regional value chains.

The CBC is implementing the Local Sourcing for Partnerships Project with the main objective of increasing local sourcing from small growth enterprises by large companies in the COMESA region in order to create jobs and economic development. The project has been implemented in eleven countries, namely Zambia, Malawi, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Tanzania, Egypt, Zimbabwe and South Africa and aimed at strengthening the capacity of more 700 suppliers in the hospitality industry and food and beverages sector.

In line with the above, the Local Sourcing for Partnership (LSP) project will be implemented in Zambia and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).  For this task, CBC is seeking a Zambian Training Consultant with technical expertise on Food Safety Management Systems to implement the following:

  • Training in the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points modules – with a focus on how SMEs can implement these requirements in their business operations;
  • Business counseling expertise for enterprise development to be carried out for selected SMEs over a 30-day period. This is to ensure that selected businesses meet standards and quality practices demanded by the selected corporate industries to encourage local penetration into their formal supply chains.
