About Safe Food and Feed Foundation

The Safe Food and Feed Foundation is a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) based in Nigeria with the aim of increasing awareness on safety in food and feed processing and storage. It promotes entrepreneurship in agriculture, particularly among the youths. The SFFF intends to achieve the goals through partnership with relevant research institutions, individuals, solution providers, manufacturers of analytical equipment and materials, governments , farmers, food and feed industries, national , international bodies and other stakeholders.

The need to achieve our aim is underscored by the health implications of the consumption of dietary contaminants to man and livestock. The fact that the export of such unwholesome items constitutes serious economic loss to the country is also of note. Through meetings (seminars , workshops, trade fairs, etc) press release, online information, and collaborations, the Foundation hopes to achieve increased enlightenment and enhanced capacity building, thereby improving human health through wholesome nutrition.

So, let s work together.

Is it true Kenya secretly passed farmer-hostile seed law ?

On April 8, 2022, , a news report  stated that the Kenyan government might have passed a law that may work against local farmers. According to the report the sale of un=indexed (?) seeds is now prohibited. Please read on

Farmers will now be heavily fined or face a jail term if found guilty of selling uncertified seeds.

This is according to the recently enacted Seeds and Plant Varieties Act of 2012, Part 2(8) on restrictions on sales of seeds of unindexed plant varieties.

This new law introduced by the government has placed restrictions on the informal seed system, in a bid to ensure that all seeds sold or distributed in the country have been certified.

Technically, the Kenyan Seed and Plant Varieties Act criminalizes the selling or sharing of indigenous seeds.

Those found guilty risk a 6-month jail term or a fine of Sh20,000 or both.

Reacting to the news, Kenyans have criticised the move with most (rightfully) viewing it as a tactic by the elite to weaponize food insecurity in Kenya.

In neighbouring countries like Tanzania and Uganda, a farmer is free to sell or share seeds as they wish.

How do some of these bills go through parliament without much debate?

You might hear them give excuses about how we will use new advanced technologies in agriculture until you read the details and shock hits you.

Just like the new legislation on data privacy that reads like an affirmation for free data mining by big tech firms like Safaricom.

Bearing in mind that in the Monsanto, Bayer or Syngenta model you are not allowed to plant seeds from your last harvest.

They sue you if you do.

You must buy seeds every season.

This law is written to create a market for seed companies.
