Fish waste in ghana

SOTM September. Fish Waste In Ghana

For this slide of the month our West Africa team has done in-depth research on the fish sector in Ghana.

The value chain analysis shows that despite partly very modern and efficient fish production there is still a huge food loss during processing, packaging and logistics. This challenge means also a great potential for investments to reduce food waste where africon together with the SAVE FOOD initiative are strongly committed.
