All Set For FAGRO 2013

produceAll is set for the 5th National Food and Agric Show (FAGRO) scheduled to take place from October 24 to 28, 2013 at the Efua Sutherland Park in Accra.

The objective of this year’s FAGRO is to bring together all those related with the agric sector under one roof to provide global and comprehensive information on current developments in the agric sector.

There will be a general exhibition of local and international agricultural companies in manufacturing, poultry and poultry equipment, seeds and seedlings, aqua culture, feeding equipment, packaging and processing technology, irrigation systems, and financial institutions among others.

A statement issued by FAGRO’s Exhibition Director, Alberta Nana Akyaa Akosa, said the special highlight for this year is the field demonstration on irrigation and green house by Israeli Company, Netafim and Dizengoff Ghana Ltd.

“With our partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture, it is worthy to note that, all the directorates under the Ministry of Agriculture will be fully represented at the fair grounds to showcase their work, opportunities and contributions to the nation,” she said.

Ms. Akosa said another strategic add-on to FAGRO this year is a series of roundtable discussions on whether Oil and Gas is replacing the contribution of Ghana’s Agric to GDP, the role of women in creating the right investment environment and accessing funds for trade and export.

FAGRO has over the years brought together over 1,000 exhibitors, government officials, the international community, civil society, market women, students and various local international actors in the agric sector.

FAGRO is an initiative of Infocus PR in partnership with the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA) and supported by the GIZ, EDAIF, YARA and Kasapreko.
