Hello Jonathan,

The answer to feeding Ghana - and once that is accomplished, helping feed the world - lies in finding ways to transform subsistence farmers into entrepreneurs. The global population is hurtling towards 9 billion by 2050, according to the world bank, and feeding all these people will require a 70 percent increase in agricultural productivity. The existing system of multinational mega-farms wont be enough - the hope for the future lies not in mass production, but in production by the masses. We at Ekua Pa understand that collaborations and partnerships in agriculture especially with Export markets and investors is key to accelerating our impact. I'm sure we can find some common grounds to work together on some projects - most especially with the contract buying/export market concept.

All the best with your project too.

Cheers,

Thanks Shane, i haven't published it yet. Will do when my team and i are done with some final editing and inputs. We are trying to upload some images and videos to make the concept a bit easier to grasp and visualize for page visitors. Should be published in a few hours time. We are excited about this!
