GHANA COMMODITY EXCHANGE FIELD STAFF TRAINED ON GRAIN GRADING BY GHANA STANDARDS AUTHORITY

 

 

As part of efforts to ensure topmost quality through the operations of its warehouses, the Ghana Commodity Exchange’s field staff were trained on grain grading on the 13th of August, 2020. This follows the recent approval GCX obtained from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to enlist rice unto its electronic trading platform.

 

The training, which was conducted by the Ghana Standards Authority, sought to educate the Warehouse managers of GCX and keep them abreast with the evolving standard requirements for grains nationally and internationally. With this acquired knowledge, participants will be able to grade and manage all grain types that are deposited into the various GCX warehouses, including rice which will soon be traded on the GCX platform.

 

 

The training also saw a practical session in which participants were taken through the various steps in sampling and grading of rice with the use of certified apparatus provided by GSA, as well as parameters for grading rice. Participants were also taken through an overview of the national Aflatoxin standards and the reduction of Aflatoxin infestation, a problem which has affected the agriculture sector of many countries, including Ghana.

After the training, participants were issued certification by the GSA to make them certified grain graders.

 

 

The Ghana Commodity Exchange is a modern marketplace, regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for buyers and sellers of agricultural and other commodities to trade in an efficient and orderly manner.

 

Currently, the Exchange trades maize, soyabean, sorghum, sesame and will soon commence trade of rice. It operates a network of warehouses across the country, specifically in Afram Plains, Kumasi, Juaben, Ejura, Kintampo, Wenchi, Tamale, Sandema and Wa. Here, commodities are deposited by farmers to be cleaned, dried, graded, weighed, rebagged and stored under good conditions and later sold on the GCX electronic trading platform.
