Ghana’s president Nana Akufo-Addo has commissioned the Bodukwan Multifruit processing Factory, falling under the 1-District-1-Factory initiative. The fruit processing plant, which has an installed capacity of 72 tonnes per day, will process seven varieties of fruits and vegetables including mango, pineapple, watermelon, and tomatoes into concentrates for exports and for use by the domestic market.
Commissioning the factory on Tuesday, on day 2 of his 3-day tour of the Ashanti Region, the president stated that the One District One Factory (1D1F) initiative is in fulfilment of a 2016 campaign promise, whose aim is to establish, together with the private sector, at least one industrial enterprise in each of the administrative districts of the country.
