The René Moawad Foundation (RMF) extends its value chain activity program with AUB

​The René Moawad Foundation has extended their value chain activity program with FAFS-AUB, which is led by Dr. Walid El Kayal, Assistant Professor at the Department of Agriculture, through the project “Strengthening Exports of Fruits and Vegetables from Lebanon to European and Regional Markets” until end of August 2022. 

This collaboration that includes three commercial value chains (Avocado, Grapes and Cherries) contributed to the successful export of a test batch of Lebanese avocado to the United Kingdom last June for the first time and it will ensure the export of more commodities from Lebanon to the UK and to the EU market in the future. As part of this effort, Dr. El Kayal has organized a virtual workshop in the form of a series of sessions with the University of California (UC Davis) Postharvest Center which began on July 28. The next session was held on December 6 on avocado pest management. ​​​
