About 3 years ago, the government of Togo forbade the exportation of maize.
The decision was motivated by the need to curb speculation on this basic food and reach some level of food sufficiency.
Maize is at the base of over 70% of food consumed in Togo.
Togo still export maize, but under case by case authorization by the government.
