SON To Introduce Standards For Agricultural Machinery by naijagro: 9:48am On Feb 23, 2018
As part of efforts towards boosting food production in the country, the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) says it will introduce standards for grinding plate, grinding machine and other agricultural machinery in the country.
Director-General, SON, Mr Osita Aboloma said such machinery would be used in the processing of agricultural products through the transformation of raw food into marketable or consumable food products for end users. He said that the introduction of the standards for agricultural food processing equipment was to ensure uniformity in specifications. “The development and promotion of these standards will assure the quality of equipment, service parts and their outputs. It will also add greater impetus to the agricultural sector’s contribution to food safety in Nigeria, while also enhancing its foreign exchange earning capacity,” Aboloma told attendees at the opening of a technical committee meeting in Lagos to discuss standards for the machinery.
He stated the standards would make agricultural machinery conform to standards while ensuring profit for businesses. “When concluded, approved and published, the standards for agricultural machinery and equipment will ensure that agricultural processes and products conform to standards. It will also ensure quality requirements to meet the needs of the end users, guarantee value for money for consumers and profits for businesses,” he said.
