The Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah has encouraged Nestle to enter a trade partnership with the  Komenda Sugar Factory to source sugar directly from the factory in order to boost the local industry.

He said since Nestle Ghana used sugar in many of its products, it could look at ways of partnering with the factory, which is yet to be commissioned to obtain quality sugar for their production.

Dr Spio-Garbrah made the suggestion when he paid a working visit to Nestle Ghana’s factory in Tema..

The minister who seems to be particularly enthusiastic about the plight and success of local businesses and manufacturers  said  “ the sugar factory which has been completed, has the capacity to produce 1,250 tonnes of white sugar daily and a with the support from multi-national companies like Nestle, the factory  would operate at full capacity and propel the country’s industrial success.”

Dr Spio-Garbrah appealed to Nestle’s management to use the made-in-Ghana logo on their products to help market the country to the international community where Nestle Ghana exports some of its products, since as a multi-national company, it produced to international specifications.

The Managing Director of Nestle Ghana, Mrs Freda Duplan said the company had more than 1,300 employees, most of whom were Ghanaians.

With a daily production capacity of 250 tonnes, the company, she added, sourced most of its raw materials which included maize, rice and millet locally.

Mrs Duplan also said to help boost the capacity of farmers who produced for the company, over 52,000 farmers had been trained to produce quality cereals.

Nestle Ghana produces Milo, Cerelac, Ideal Milk and Carnation Milk, and a host of other products. It has been operating in the country for over five decades.
