Ghana: Gari Production

| Updated Oct 17, 2017 at 6:46pm



Until Bush fires destroyed their farms, about three decades ago, Asueyi, a small community in the Brong Ahafo Region, was one of Ghana’s highest cocoa growing areas. This resulted in the migration of the cocoa farmers to other areas. The few who remained went into cassava farming and processing, which is done manually, and comes with exposure to open fire and smoke. However, with the establishment of a gari processing plant in the area, the residents are excited that it will provide them with safe and sustainable employment opportunities.
