Ayensu Starch Ghana

Cassava starch plant to be the first in Ghana.


President John Kufuor established a working group "Presidents Special Initiative (PSI)" to promote the agro-food industry. We have just built the Redhill factory in South Africa as the first modern cassava starch factory in Africa and PSI decided to follow up on that success and introduce the same technology in Ghana.
The initiative was backed up by government, farmers, local banks and others. From the Danish side Danida went in with a comprehensive three-year training package. This package included, inter alia approach to the use of effluent as fertilizer on farmland by land spreading and methods to monitor fertilizer efficiency as well as any nitrogen leakage to sub soil waters.
