GhanaMade Gets AGI Recognition



GhanaMadeGhanaMade Company Limited, a leading private company that focuses on promoting and marketing locally produced rice and other made in Ghana products has been presented with a certificate by the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) for its role in the promotion of made-in-Ghana products at the recently AGI Awards ceremony held in Accra.

The AGI Awards is a national event aimed at recognising industries that have distinguished themselves in their respective sectors.

Receiving the certificate, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of GhanaMade, Mrs Comfort Aniagyei noted that her company was extremely happy to have been recognised by the AGI.

“For us as a company we are delighted to note that our performance over the last five years since our establishment has caught the attention of the AGI. This has really come to us as a pleasant surprise and I must say that this will further spur us to do a lot more in marketing and promoting made-in-Ghana products” Mrs Aniagyei remarked.

Giving a brief background about her company, GhanaMade, the CEO said the company was born to help Ghana achieve total economic emancipation given that Ghana has attained political emancipation. She continued that in line with ensuring that the company’s visions are achieved, she has opened 15 outlets currently in two regions and quickly added that plans are far advanced to open more in other parts of the country.

According to her, GhanaMade braved the storm when everything Ghanaian was held in low esteem by many of our citizenry; when use of foreign goods and services was the sin qua non for sophistication and accomplishment. She pointed out that her believe in Ghana and the true African compelled her to launch the crusade to re-ignite passion and demand for made in Ghana products.

Nana Owusu Afari, immediate past  president of AGI for his part commended GhanaMade for its role in the promotion of local products and added that the certificate presented to the company was a deserved one.

“If today, demand and production of local rice and other local products have seen a significant increase and awareness of the need to patronise made-in-Ghana products has become fashionable; and if AGI is making buying made-in-Ghana goods a clarion call, it is thanks to people like Mrs. Comfort Aniagyei and GhanaMade who worked assiduously to make this vision a living reality,” he said.
