Ghana : OMNICANE to invest US$250M in various sugar plantation projects in the NORTHERN REGION

August 20, 2014

A Mauritian energy and manufacturing company, Omnicane, is set to spend around US$250million on a range of sugar plantation projects in Savelugu in the Northern Region.

This follows the end of a test proving the project's commercial and production viability.

The five-year project, which has been proposed to produce over 100,000 tonnes of refined sugar per year, would yield work opportunities for locals of one of the most poverty-endemic areas in the country.

The Northern Regional Minister, Alhaji Mohammed Limuna Muniru, said several training programmes have been put in place to boost the people's skill-sets before the project is launched.

The minister added : "Efforts are being made to train more of the youths who will be engaged to discharge their duties well, ensuring that the raw materials produced from the region meet international standards to attract more investors that will contribute their quota to enhancement of the region."
