2015 GIC in the 3rd Agro Food Fair West Africa

The Green Innovation Centre Project - Ghana (GIC), implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA), participated in the 3rd annual Agrofood West Africa Trade Fair at the Accra International Conference Centre in Accra, Ghana on 1 – 3 December, 2015. The trade fair, which is organized by fairtrade, Agrofood West Africa and Delegation der Deutschen Wirtschaft in Ghana (AHK), is Ghana’s largest food trade show. This year, the trade fair featured over 45 major international players in the food, agriculture, and packaging technology sectors. At the fair, the Green Innovation Centre presented the project’s objectives, which focus on promoting ideas and innovations in the pineapple, maize and rice value chains. The initiative “One World – No Hunger,” which is active in 13 partner countries and implemented by respective Green Innovation Centres was recently launched by The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The aim of the initiative is to improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers, rural communities and national food security. The Head of the Team of GIC - Ghana, Mike Bartels, stated in an interview that, “The Green Innovation Centre Project - Ghana, supports technological and organizational innovations within the maize, rice and pineapple value chains. We drive a comprehensive approach that combines advice, competency-based training and investment measures. The Green Innovation Center project engages open-minded, commercially oriented farmer groups as well as companies, who have the willingness and the capacities to successfully operate innovations”.
