In light of the challenges in agriculture related to quantity (achieving a better rate of protection and ensuring a source of income) and to quality (controlling and limiting sanitary and phytosanitary risks and marketing agricultural and food products that respect food safety), agricultural development stakeholders must define and implement new approaches.

From production to processing, the concepts of value chains and commodity chains become meaningful. Sustainable rural development is sought and new skills are needed in the production, processing, marketing and export "processes". International regulations, together with standards, certification and labelling, are the pillars of this sector, along with scientific and agronomic knowledge.
