Mr Nimako made said this during a working visit to the just ended Golden Jubilee Trade Fair at the Accra International Trade Fair Centre.
He indicated that the food grade materials used for most plastic bottles could be recycled into other plastic products and said the company was ready to partner any recycling company in that direction.
