Stakeholder Meeting Held to Strengthen Local Supply Chains & Support Smallholder Farmers

Accra Brewery PLC, WFP, and AB InBev Foundation maiden stakeholder meeting to Strengthen Local Supply Chains and Support Smallholder Farmers held.

Selected maize farmer groups, aggregators, and input suppliers in the Bono and Ashanti regions have expressed optimism about the growth of their businesses this year. This positive outlook was shared at the inaugural stakeholder meeting held in the Bono and Ashanti regions, aimed at showcasing the impactful partnership between Accra Brewery PLC, the World Food Programme, and the AB InBev Foundation.

The pilot phase of the project, set to conclude in 2024, targets the production of about 5,500 metric tons of maize. The focus of the project is on empowering women and youth, thereby fostering inclusive growth within the agricultural sector.

“We are thrilled to see such enthusiasm and optimism from the maize farming communities,” said Solomon Ayiah, Head of Legal and Corporate Affairs at Accra Brewery PLC. “This partnership not only aims to boost maize farming activities but also strives to improve the livelihoods of our farmers, especially women and the youth, who are crucial to the sustainability and growth of our agricultural economy.”

As we move forward with this partnership, we remain committed to supporting the local communities and ensuring the success of this project, ultimately contributing to the broader goal of food security and economic development in the region.
