Today, the Northern Patriots in Research and Advocacy (NORPRA) kicked off a transformative training program for 600 women in Bolgatanga! These women will learn to produce high-quality soya and groundnut products, such as groundnut paste, oil, milk, and sausage.

This initiative is part of the Northern Women Soya and Groundnut Enterprise project under the USAID-supported Feed the Future Ghana Trade and Investment Activity’s grant program.

A team of food scientists and experts from the Food Research Institute of Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in Accra is conducting the training.

The program aims to enhance the women’s knowledge and skills in raw material handling, aflatoxin testing, and good manufacturing practices. This training will help them obtain certifications from the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) and the Ghana Standards Authority (GSA).

Participants will also engage in practical sessions, using modern technology and equipment to ensure their products meet the quality standards of both domestic and international markets.

Let’s support and celebrate these women as they embark on this journey to boost their skills, improve their livelihoods, and contribute to Ghana’s agricultural growth!
