Let’s start building? Not so fast.26.08.2022
Perfect spot? Check! Land acquired? Check! Let’s start? Not so fast… We got the land we wanted! But haven’t started to build. First, we have to get through the bureaucracy work which always takes some time, regardless of the country – “sigh”. Our architectural plan looks great within our own imagination but some things are not as easy to realize as we thought, and every adjustment to the plan takes quite some time. Unless the architectural plan is set and fixed, we won’t be able to start with construction. So fingers crossed and let’s hope it will not take all too long anymore.
When everything is finally ready, which we hope will soon be the case, we can prepare the land, lay the foundation, and start making progress on the construction site.
Over the next few weeks, we are inviting you to follow us while we construct Africa’s largest cocoa fruit factory in the Eastern Region of Ghana. The new factory will allow us to create an additional 250 new, valuable jobs, and support local communities. Furthermore, we will be able to collaborate with an additional 10,000 smallholder farmers – currently, we are at 2,200. This expansion allows us to provide a significant extra income to even more Ghanaian cocoa farmers.
