President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says the Komenda Sugar Factory will be fully operationalized in April 2022.
According to him, there are some civil works currently ongoing at the factory site and by the end of March, all those activities will be completed to pave way for production.
Speaking at a meeting with the Komenda Traditional Council at the Jubilee House, Nana Akufo-Addo said the factory will bounce back soon.
“On the sugar factory, some civil works are being done there and hopefully by the end of March, it will be completed. The Indians are in and doing some work and so by April, production would have begun at the sugar factory,” he assured the traditional leaders.
A Ghanaian-Indian company, Park Agrotech Ghana Limited, is the new investor who will take over the operations of the factory.
The government in 2019 said the company was expected to inject $28 million into the factory between 2020 and 2023.
