Ghana Commissions West Africa's Largest Greenhouse Estate

Ghana has commissioned seventy-five (75) greenhouses, in addition to an Entrepreneurship and Innovation Centre at Dawhenya, a community  located 33km from Accra, the country's capital. The project was constructed by the Ministry of Business Development and National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (NEIP).

The project is touted as the biggest Green Village in Ghana and in the West African sub-region. The 75 greenhouses can produce 4,500 tonnes of tomatoes annually, bringing in a yearly revenue of 11 million Ghana Cedis (GH¢11 million) with a potential total employment of 230 persons. 

Harvested produce from the greenhouses is currently sold in major supermarkets and malls including: the Farmers' Market, Shoprite and Max Mart.
