About This Book
This book reports on a research project that analysed agro-processing firms' economic and financial situation in Ghana. The main objective of the book is to provide an empirical evidence for stakeholders in the agricultural value-chain to improve efficiencies in food crops agro-processing in Ghana. The research project, undertaken by economic and financial research experts, focussed on food crops agro-processing firms' structure and concentration, ownership and employment characteristics, operational capacities, use of technology, productivity, and credit conditions. It also discusses constraints facing firms in the food crop agro-processing industry regarding standardisation, quality control and marketing. The book categorically outlines the context, opportunities and challenges in promoting food crops agro-processing in Ghana. It also provides a framework that will enable policy makers and other actors to prioritise interventions needed for using agro-processing to rationalise industrialisation, substitute import, create jobs and promote inclusive growth.
