GhanaVeg: Commercial Vegetable Sector Development in Ghana

GHANAVEG – Commercial Vegetable Sector Development in Ghana

GhanaVeg is an initiative of The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in line with efforts towards prioritizing commercial agriculture in its 4-years Multi-Annual Strategic Plan (2014-2017).

The Initiatives’ mission is to establish  a sustainable and internationally competitive vegetable sector that contributes to inclusive economic growth and has the capacity to continuously innovate in terms of products and services.

GhanaVeg is driven by a strong belief in healthy and quality vegetables from Ghana through new ways of doing business. The initiative targets the high-end domestic and international markets (high end supermarkets, hotels, restaurants and exports).

GhanaVeg Project objectives include improving productivity in the vegetable sector; facilitating more efficient markets, including: linking vegetable producers and other value chain operators with the Dutch private sector; improving the business climate and further professionalizing the value chain for vegetable production and consumption in Africa.

GhanaVeg envisages to support the Ghana vegetable sector through strong business-led initiatives: a Vegetable Business Platform; a Business Opportunities Fund; a R&D Co-Innovation Fund and Consultancy Fund; and a high-level Public-Private Dialogue.

Project Duration: 2014 to 2017
