SAFT also cooperated with the GIZ regional project “ASEAN Sustainable Agrifood Systems” (ASEAN-SAS) on showcasing organic best practices for the production of vegetables and fruits, and on how to create regional market access in Cambodia. As a result of several trainings and technical advice, two organic agricultural farms of KOC have been successfully certified.
