The vegetable market in Ghana is a huge business opportunity for Dutch investors, as its growing middle-class demands high quality vegetables. This demand is not yet met with adequate local supply. Next to promising opportunities for the local market, the Ghanaian vegetable market has lots of potential for export.
The GhanaVeg program comprises a long-term project in which Dutch private sector companies are provided with academic studies that indicate local business opportunities as well as funding-possibilities. This mission will give your company the opportunity to explore its business opportunities in the Ghanaian vegetable sector in a supportive environment, and will provide your company with useful contact by means of company visits and B2B matchmaking sessions. The last two days the delgation will join two formal activities at the Dutch Embassy in Accra that are part of the RVO mission to Nigeria and Ghana in the company of H.E. Minister Ploumen.
