Abstract

This is the final report on a DFID-funded three and a half year project in support of the National Centre for Food Science and Technology (CITA), which belongs to the University of Costa Rica. The aim of the project has been to increase the competitively of agro-industry in Central America and the Caribbean, and it cost £270,000. The information presented in this report indicates significant steps have been made in achieving that goal. The area of quality management has proved a particular area of strength, with CITA focusing its support sequentially upon the needs of particular sub-sectors. The authors make various suggestions about how CITA might build on this and other achievements in the future.
