Dear Partners, I hope that you are all doing good. Most of the partners in the consortium have met during our meeting last week and we believe that our Discussion forum can now be initiated. To begin, it would be great to get a draft on the work currently being done on Breadfruit by each partner in this partnership. As mentioned in the meeting, each organisation has a page where they can share their work. The pages can be viewed on the Front page or you can access your organisation page on the link below:

I just found this project which started in 2011, which sounds very much like what we are also trying to do in Mauritius. Do you think we have an advantage over them (even though we do not have the funds yet? Here is a link to the project flyer:

I can see many similarities between what they are doing and what the Mauritius breadfruit consortium is trying to establish.. Maybe the advantage we have is that in terms of partners, we have more stakeholders involved (African+European) and we are taking the whole value-chain into consideration to develop a National breadfruit program that will benefit and impact more stakeholders.

Very interesting video by the way. Thanks for sharing. I highly encourage our partners to watch it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vb8_f1K6FZA&feature=youtu.be

Now that the proceedings of the workshop is out - we need to start looking for information to answer the questions we had for ourselves - you realise that no one else is going to look for the answers, so choose a topic and dig in! Let others know what information you are looking up so we do not duplicate our efforts!
