Dr Rajamani said the gallant farmers in the country helped the Kingdom Exim Group to provide the right agro-commodi­ties for the international market.

“The working relationship between King­dom Exim Group and Ghanaian farmers over the years has been mutually bene­fitting,” he said and pledged the group’s continuous support towards the well-being of farmers.
