NATIONAL FOOD AND AGRIC SHOW OPENS ON SUNDAY

By INFOCUSPRLtd

On Sunday, November 29, 2009, the Grand National Food and Agric Show to showcase and sell Agricultural products, farm produce, equipments and machinery will kick-off at the Efua Sutherland Children’s Park.

The five (5) day show will also display Ghanaian traditional foods from all the ten (10) regions on a daily basis to be sampled by people who visit the fair. This free food sampling aims to promote indigenous Ghanaian foods as highly nutritious and healthy.

Over a hundred and fifty exhibitors from diverse agricultural disciplines, manufacturers, and equipment dealers would be in attendance. Resource persons from the Ghana Standard Board, YARA, Myroc and MIDA will hold free seminars on topics such as Food Safety, Farmers Financial Freedom, Agro Trade, Modern Methods of Farming, Rabbit and Grasscutter Rearing.

The Project Coordinator of FAGRO ’09, Ms. Alberta Nana Akyaa Akosa noted that, “the main motive behind the fair is to add value to agriculture and move it from it peasant stage to a commercial stage. Agriculture is a highly ignored discipline and this is not good for the growth of the economy. A lot of corporate institutions do not place high priority on Agriculture and we at FAGRO aim to bring a new revolution in the Agriculture sector. This revolution will increase Private Partnership Approach; where Agriculture will not be politically but privately driven; a revolution where most of our young ones will come out of school and yearn to go into Agriculture” she noted. “It is the only way we can free ourselves from the high import rate of all consumables”, She added”.

The side attraction of this fair is the “Dancing on the Farm Bash” on the 3rd of December 2009, which will usher in the Farmers’ Day and say ‘Ayeekoo’ to our farmers for their contribution to National Development.

FAGRO 2009 is expected to attract scores of individuals, students, investors, industry players, students and families. On sale would be fresh farm produce and other consumables at subsidized rates.
