Promasidor Ghana Commissions a new dairy factory and cuts sod for the construction of a new ultra modern distribution centre
Ghana’s Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr Haruna Iddrissu, commissioned Promasidor Ghana’s new dairy factory and cut the sod for the construction of an ultra modern distribution centre in Accra at its premises. The ceremony was very colourful with traditional dance and drumming performances, and was attended by management and staff and officials of Ghana’s Trade and Industry ministry, led by its minister who was the guest of honour.
The minister commended Promasidor Ghana for its contribution to Ghana’s economy and its effort that has led to jobs for young Ghanaians. Mr Olivier Thiry, MD of Promasidor Ghana, thanked the government for its support and staff for their commitment and dedication that has led to the phenomenal growth experienced by Promasidor Ghana over the last couple of years.
With the new factory, Promasidor Ghana has increased capacity to support its export efforts in neighbouring countries such as Liberia, Sierra Leone, Togo, Burkina Faso, to mention a few, as well as satisfy the growing demand of the local market. The investments made in infrastructural development would enable it to meet its growth projections and improve its production quality, as well as provide a congenial working environment for high productivity for its staff.
All in all the completed projects include a new dairy factory, an expanded and refurbished food enhancement factory, as well as new offices for the administrative staff.
To symbolize the official commencement of the new construction project, the minister mounted a bulldozer on site to dig out some earth from the area earmarked for the project. It is envisaged that the project should be completed in 12 months, i.e. December 2014. The minister enumerated a number of government initiatives to support private sector businesses in Ghana in the future and assured Promasidor Ghana of the government’s continued support. The event was covered by national television and radio networks.
