A 20-million dollar world-class factory under the One District One Factory (1D1F) has been commissioned by the Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo-Maafo.
The factory, De United Foods Industries Limited (Dufil) will produce Indomie (noodles).
Commissioning the factory, the senior minister said the factory is expected to add about 150 direct jobs to Ghana’s economy.
The factory is also expected to produce over 30,000 metric tonnes of noodles annually and 8,000 metric tonnes of spaghetti per annum.
Mr. Osafo-Maafo further reiterated that the New Patriotic Party’s agenda to transform the economy and country to an industrialized economy anchored on value-addition.
The ceremony was attended by top government officials, including Alan Kyerematen, Minister of Trade and Industry and Mr Ishmael Ashitey, Greater Accra Regional Minister.
On his part, Mr. Alan Kyerematen said the company established will help government save foreign exchange which would have been used to import the noodles.
Meanwhile, the Managing Director for Dufil Ghana, Mahesh Shah, said indomie had become a household name which was evident in the over 250 million packs sold by his outfit in 2019.
The NPP government under the leadership of Akufo-Addo in their quest to address unemployment is undertaking a massive industrialisation campaign across the country.
This will equip and empower communities to utilise their local resources in manufacturing products that are in high demand both locally and internationally.
The government believes this will allow the country to reap the well known rewards of industrialisation, such as gains in efficiency in every facet of life in our society, increase in agricultural and manufacturing output, a reduction in the reliance on imports and increase in the production of consumer goods and food availability.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Ghanaians are expected to enjoy a massive drop in the price of fuel in the next pricing window on March 15, 2020.
The development follows the over 30% drop in world crude prices and the stability of the Ghana Cedi against the major foreign currencies, especially the US dollar.
The Energy Ministry, as well as the National Petroleum Authority, NPA, have assured Ghanaians of some relief during the next pricing window.
