GhanaVeg – Healthy and Quality Vegetables from Ghana through New Ways of Doing Business
GhanaVeg is public-private program for commercial vegetable sector development in Ghana, initiated (and funded) by the Netherlands Embassy in Accra in line with efforts towards prioritizing commercial agriculture in its 4-year Multi-Annual Strategic Plan (2014-2017).
