Nduom’s Edwumawura rice will hit Ghana’s markets following the proposed commissioning of the Worawora Rice Mill today, the 1st of November.
Groupe Nduom, owned by popular entrepreneur and politician, Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom will formally introduce one of the company’s newest product, the Edwumawura Rice into the market in November.
The two mills that will see to the production of the rice are the renovated Worawora Rice Factory and the Assin Bereku Factory. The Worawora Factory will be inaugurated on the 1st of November while sod will be cut for the construction of the Assin Bereku Rice Factory on the 3rd of November.
The production of Nduom’s Edwumawura rice forms part of the businessman’s agenda to alleviate the sufferings of Ghanaians; a great part of whom are farmers. To feed the rice mills, Nduom has reportedly employed about 4,000 paddy rice out-growers.
Groupe Nduom believes that the company has the potential of producing a local quality that outshines the various foreign brands that are already in the Ghanaian markets. It is also believed that market is already available for the product since it is in record that Ghana annually imports rice worth $1.5 billion from countries like Thailand, China, India, Vietnam, etc.
The Groupe has a vision of creating wealth and jobs for all Ghanaians, especially the lower class. It is this vision that has driven the establishment of the rice mills which would provide opportunities that will help improve the living standards of farmers in the areas where they are located.
Dr. Kwesi Nduom, the Groupe President has always believed that the country can only develop if leadership in government and business help citizens to produce the best quality of locally made goods that have an edge over foreign goods when it comes to market competition.
He has therefore decided to continue practising what he preaches by establishing these rice plants which he believes will reduce poverty through the engagement of rice farmers, farm assistants and other necessary workers in the production areas and beyond.
