Togo: Government to impose minimum quota of local products in dishes offered by hotels and restaurants in the country  

(Togo First) - A minimum quota of local products will be integrated to meals offered in hotels and restaurants operating in Togo. The measure aims to promote local production, processing and consumption, which are impaired by a high importation level.

Through this initiative, the Head of State wants to improve consumption of local products, reports local newspaper Kamgou citing minister of agriculture Noël Bataka (photo).

In February 2019, on the sidelines of a cabinet reshuffling, the ministry of Trade, now headed by former chief commissioner of the Togolese Revenue Office (OTR), Kodjo Adedze, was tasked with ensuring that consumption of local products rises.
