The CNN soundtrack, herds ravaged by disease, desperately poor farmers and eggs all the way from Holland – just four of the first impressions of FW’s Business editor Andrew Shirley who’s reporting from The Gambia right now.
Andrew will be posting updates of his progress from his agricultural fact-finding mission on our Food For Thought blog. You can read up-to-the-minute news and ask him questions about Africa which he’ll try to answer while he’s out there.
It’s a truly international feel on FWi’s blogs this week, with our Europe editor Philip Clarke in Washington, where he’ll be meeting some of the great and the good of American farming. You can also read his posts on the Food For Thought blog.
