On December 1st, a new multifruit facility by Tropical Food Machinery was inaugurated in the Ashanti region of Ghana.
The ceremony was attended by the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the King of Ashanti, Otomfuo Osei Tutu II, testifying to the great interest in collaboration between our two countries in the agribusiness sector.
At least 72 tons of fruit per day are needed to meet the domestic market demand but also to exports to West Africa and beyond. Such amount will be the production capacity of the fruit processing plant (mango, pineapple, tomato and watermelon).
The new plant will also have a 240-hectare orchard, as well as a network of suppliers between the regions of Ashanti, Bono, Volta and Ahafo. leading the creation of more than 100 direct and 1000 indirect jobs. The project is part of the “One District, One Factory” government initiative, whose goal is to install at least one industrial plant in each administrative district in partnership with the private sector.
