Description:

Agriculture, fishing and industry by-products are the first sources of natural resources in Ghana, and therefore, the use of these perishable goods to feed the population with very food rich in proteins is essential to meet the needs of the inland population.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES

• Increase the storage capacity of perishable goods produced in the country as well as their distribution to consumption centers using products originating from Ghana and raw materials such as fruits, fish, meat, etc.
• Improve the cooling infrastructure in the country by adding new plants, new channels for local distribution and the most optimal way to meet the demand for food.
• Increase the capacity of handling and storage in the area of consumption, distribution and services. This will result in better conditions such as: organoleptical, quality, quantity, price and a constant supply.
• Stimulate the consumption centers and markets, commercializing and facilitating the availability of stored products even out of season.
