Ginger and pepper sectors : A XOF13.5 bln processing plant to be completed by 2022

(Togo First) - In Togo, the foundation stone of a ginger and pepper processing plant was recently laid in Gbadi-Nkougna, the Plateaux region.

Planned to be completed by 2022, the project is led by Boss Approche Agricole, which partnered with German and Canadian companies.

Its minimum yearly processing capacity is 200,000 tons of ginger.

The plant, a XOF13.5 billion investment, will boost farmers’ yield and create several direct and indirect jobs, according to Agence Togolaise de Presse (ATOP).

According to Koudjo Bossiadé, MD of Boss Approche Agricole, spurred by the plant, the ginger sector will create 4,000 agricultural jobs. The sector will also create 1,000 labour jobs (collection, storage, processing, and marketing).
