Ghanaian brand goes abroad

In an equally exciting story, A1 bread, a popular indigenous Ghanaian bread-making brand has now extended its operations to the United States of America.

According to a report made public by the Embassy of Ghana in Washington DC, USA, the expansion was grounded on a special partnership arrangement with a major American bread company to ensure scale and penetration of the U.S. market at a faster rate.

Photos sighted by YEN.com.gh of the bakery show that the factory that has been set up is quite a stupendous one that would serve a great number of customers.
