President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Friday, cut the sod for the construction of the Ekumfi Fruits and Juices Factory under the One District One Factory Initiative at Ekumfi in the Central region.
The factory which will be the first of many will see the processing of about 80 tonnes of fruits daily.
Speaking at the official launching of the initiative, President Akufo-Addo said the policy is not a political gimmick but one that will change the fortunes of the economy.
He said the country cannot grow if it continues to export produce in its raw state without adding value.
He entreated Ghanaians especially financial organisations to support government to make the project successful and banish the spectre of young and able bodied men and women who leave rural areas for urban areas in search of non-existing jobs.
