Mr Godwin Edudzi Yao Effah, the Municipal Chief Executive
(MCE) for Keta, has cut the sod for the commencement of
works on Cassava Processing Factory at Tsiame-Dorveme in
the Municipality.
The factory, which is a partnership between the Municipal
Assembly and Hormeku Engineers and Planners (HoPE)
Limited, is part of the government's flagship One District One
Factory (1D1F) project for the Municipality.
Addressing the Chiefs and people at a ground-breaking
ceremony,for work to start on the factory building, Mr Effah
said the Municipality would soon get its first 1D1F project.
The factory will start operations after the construction of the
building to accommodate already fabricated machinery and
equipment for the project.
The MCE said the 1D1F project was a demonstration of
government's commitment to bringing development to the
Keta area and asked the residents to support the execution of
the projects.
“I wish to state and caution that those who will be employed
during the construction work on the sheds, installation of the
machinery and any other construction works should ensure
that materials that will be conveyed to the site are protected
and kept intact for the job to be well executed.”
He said the 1D1F factory and other development projects in
the Municipality like Asadame, Agorvinu, Aborlove-Nolopi and
Lawoshime would open up the area to the rest of the country
and improve the lives of residents.
Mr Kofivi Hormeku, the Managing Director, HoPE Ltd said the
integrated cassava processing plant would process at least 40
per cent of cassava produced in Keta Municipality into
industrial cassava flour, cassava flour, dried cassava chips,
ethanol, gari, atieke, cassava dough and animal feed.
He said the aim was to transform cassava production in the
Municipality “from a subsistence farming to commercially
viable agro-agribusiness to address rural poverty by creating 50
direct and 150 indirect jobs.”
Mr Hormeku said the factory was almost ready, adding that
the equipment for the factory was ready, three-phase electric
power and mechanised borehole were connected, over 4,000
cement blocks produced to commence the factory building
and over 65-acre cassava farm ready for harvesting.
