Yara International ASA has invested over USD 15 million into a new fertilizer terminal and blending facility in Tema. As it has committed to the development of the agricultural sector in Ghana.
This terminal, with a storage capacity of over 50,000 tonnes and blending and bagging production rate of over 100 tonnes per hour, will facilitate the ready supply and availability of our premium crop nutrition solutions to Ghanaian farmers, enabling them to enhance their productivity and livelihoods.
Managing Director of Yara Ghana Mr Danquah Addo-Yobo believes, the new Terminal will be formally opened on the 20th of February 2019 with an inauguration ceremony.
With the increasing recognition of Ghana as a hub for trade and investment in the West Africa Sub Region and the African continent in general, the new terminal opens several opportunities to Ghana.
He stated, This terminal facility will make Ghana a hub for the supply of fertilizer inputs within the sub region and contribute to employment and revenue generation to the State.
He noted that though wholly financed by Yara, the timing of the completion and inauguration of this facility also fits in the government’s program of 1D1F for the country.
He noted, It will also strongly position Yara Ghana to support the Ministry of Food and Agriculture‘s Planting for Food and Jobs initiative through the timely supply and ready availability of fertilizer products for the farming community.
