Flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Papa chess Nduom will unveil the “Edwumawura" branded rice, which is locally produced into the Ghanaian market.
The refurbished Worawora Rice Mill Factory will start producing the “Edwumawura" Rice right after the commissioning on November 1, 2016, while commencement work on the Assin Bereku Rice Factory which will also produce Edwumawura Rice will be in full force right after the inauguration on November 3, 2016.
The projects are expected to engage in all some 4000 out-growers .
The establishment of the local rice mill factory is part of the Groupe’s commitment towards the improvement of lives of indigenous Ghanaians.
By conservative estimate, Ghana imports close to $1.5 billion worth of rice from foreign countries like China, Thailand, Vietnam, India among other every year and the fact that the country consistently imports the same amount of rice within the period means there is a readily available market for rice production in Ghana.
