Melcom Holds ‘Made-In-Ghana’ Exhibition

Melcom PixMelcom Group of Companies, one of Ghana’s leading retail companies, has embarked on a six weeks “Made in Ghana Festival” to exhibit and sell locally manufactured goods and products at its biggest retail shop, Melcom Plus in Accra.

Over 70 Ghanaian companies and manufacturers are exhibiting over 400 locally-made products to customers during the period which is the second edition of the festival after a successful one was held last year.

Mr. Godwin Avenorgbo, Director of Communications at Melcom Group of Companies, explained at a press briefing on Tuesday in Accra that, the festival is to make Ghanaians aware about the quality brands being produced in the country.

Additionally, the festival is to generate among Ghanaians an appetite for Ghanaian brands and reduce the excessive importation of foreign goods to boost the economy, and also create an opportunity for farmers in the country to showcase their quality farm produce to Ghanaians.

Mr. Avenorgbo said the concept would be replicated in future in all their 28 shops countrywide.

He said after the six weeks festival, the locally-made goods would continue to be sold at other Melcom shops and urged Ghanaians to patronise “Made in Ghana” goods.

In another development, Melcom Group of Companies on Wednesday donated 639 pints of blood to the National Blood Bank at the Korle Teaching hospital after a blood donation exercise was held across 17 selected Melcom shops nationwide.

According to Mr. Anil Tahilramani, an officer at the Communications Department of Melcom, the exercise was to help the National Blood Bank to save enough blood for patients.

Madam Sophia Mellis Blankson, Donor Recruitment Officer at the National Blood Service, Korle Bu, thanked Melcom for the gesture and appealed to the general public to constantly donate blood to stock the National Blood Bank.
