AgDevCo invests $375,000 in Gee’s Fresh Point, Ghana

AgDevCo recently announced a $375,000 investment in Gee’s Fresh Point, a slaughter, processor and marketer of frozen specialty meat based in Northern Ghana.

Gee's is currently the largest private guinea fowl abattoir operator in the north of Ghana. The business is recognized as a pioneer and the only company developing the demand side of the guinea fowl value chain in the country.

"We believe that by helping socially-responsible organizations like Gee's, AgDevCo can contribute to build additional processing capacity in Northern Ghana and help increase incomes for thousands of small-scale farmers," Yasser Toor, AgDevCo's West Africa Director said. 

AgDevCo's investment into Gee’s will support the upgrading and partial mechanization of Gee's processing line, a new cold storage and refrigeration truck, and the installation of a rendering plant to convert waste from the processing line into animal feed for sale.
