Hortifresh Close Out Event


Hortifresh Close Out Event

After 8.5 years of strengthening the #horticulture sector, HortiFresh has brought to closure all its activities during a ceremony at the La Palm Royal Beach Hotel in Accra last week Thursday the 2nd of June.

This successful program helped growing the horticultural sector, supporting food security and food safety in Ghana. The fast growing sector expands now by 5% annually and besides creating healthy nutrition for Ghanaians it also has created  an export sector with an export value exceeding USD 200 million this year.

The Netherlands will continue to support the horticultural sector in Ghana, providing jobs, contributing to food safety and food security.

The Head of Mission at the Netherlands Embassy, Katja Lasseur, Head of Wageningen Centre for Development & Innovation, Hedwig Bruggeman, Program Coordinator Irene Koomen & Program Manager of HortiFresh, Sheila Assibey-Yeboah commended the sector for the enormous support during these years of #implementation.
