Mrs. Catherine Afeku demonstrated how the Ghanaian dishes could be made appealing to the international market.
During her vetting on Monday, February 6th, she noted that:
“There have always been complaints about our packaging and presentation of our Ghanaian dishes,” Mrs Afeku told parliament’s Appointments Committee.
This was said in response to a question by a committee member on how to address the situation whereby continental dishes are served even on domestic flights and in hotels.
She, however, commended British Airways for serving Ghanaian jollof on flights, adding that with about 34 airlines operating in Ghana, the potential to make Ghanaians dishes popular across the world is huge.
She was of the view that once it can be presented in an appealing way, “it will be easier to negotiate with the airlines, to show our food and sell it at the hotels”.
