  • Description

    In Tema, Ghana, a new 900,000 pound starling (three million Ghanain cedis) milk products factory was opened last week (April 14) by Ghana's Commissioner for Lands and Mineral Resources, Major Kwame Baah.

    The factory, known as the Food Speculates Ghana Limited, began commercial production of tinned milk last October. The local production of milk products is expected to save Ghana nearly a half-million pounds sterling (one and half million Ghanain cedis) a year in foreign exchange.

    The project was completed with financial assistance from the Financial Investment Bank of Ghana and by the Nestle Organisation. M. W. Mutsaerts of Nestle's and Mr. E.P.L. Gyampoh of the National Investment Bank addressed those attending the official ribbon-cutting ceremony. Major Baah - acting on behalf of Colonel Ignatius Acheampong, leader of Ghana's National Redemption Council - also made a speech.
