The Chief Executive Officer of Malvin foods and events has called Ghanaians to develop an appetite for Made in Ghana goods to boost the Ghanaian economy. She underscored the need for Ghanaians to value food produced in the country by local farmers.
The company focuses more on livelihood opportunities for women processors and the teeming young men and women without jobs. Through its multiple production units, it has employed 150 people in its catchment area and beyond.
Madam Fatahiya Imoro made the call during the launch of the Malvin Food processing factory in Tamale over the weekend. Malvin Food processing is an indigenous Ghanaian food processing company for local foods and international markets.
According to the C.E.O, she is motivated by her family’s long-standing history of breast cancer and the inability of the locals to find unadulterated food to consume. She also noted that, it makes a lot of sense for Ghanaians to make it a priority to eat local food. She called on the government to create an enabling environment for Ghanaian investors and entrepreneurs to thrive.
Madam Fatahiya bemoaned the rising cost of doing business in Ghana and called for concerted efforts by the government and stakeholders to stem the rising depreciation of the Cedi.
Ms Nneka Okereke, a Senior Social Development specialist at the World Bank and friend to Hajia Fatahiya, commended Madam Fatahiya Imoro for her fortitude in empowering women in the area.
She noted that shea was impressed about her friend’s decision to create employment opportunities for women. She also encouraged financial institutions to re-channel their support to women entrepreneurs, stressing on the relevance of women empowerment to the society.
