JENEFAL has acquired approximately 100 acres farm land located at Akim Adeiso in the Upper West Akim District, Eastern Region to engage in farming and food processing activities. After two times consecutively winning the best Food Processor Farmer’s awards in the District in 2005 and 2006, JENEFAL emerged to the sport light of the Ghana Government to benefit a public –private partnership, leading to the upgrade of one of its sub-industry processing unit facilities into Good Practice Center (GPC) in the year 2010; with joint support from IFAD / MOFA / RTIMP.
JENEFAL is a beneficiary and sole responsible for the operations, management and maintenance of the GPC. In addition, JENEFAL is linked to partner with smallholder cassava farmers (out-growers), organized into Farmer Base Organizations (FBOs) in the Upper West Akim District; thus Adeiso Area Cassava Farmers Association, to sustainably increase cassava production needed for the efficient operation of the GPC.
The FBO, made up of 5 existing sub-groups, currently has a membership of about104 farmers who have been organized and duly registered under the auspices of RTIMP to link with the JENEFAL GPC. With the support of LD Consult and MoFA, JENEFAL hopes to organize more out-grower farmers in the West Akim Municipality to extend to the the adjoining districts of Naswam-Adoagyiri and Ewutu-Senya East into more FBOs in order to expand the production base of cassava and thus sustain the processing of gari for export and domestic consumption.
More organized farmers will be the direct market surge for the expansion of improved cassava planting material nursery that JENEFAL is committed to cultivate seasonally or annually to supply free of charge among linked farmers. It is anticipated that, more than 200 farmers, cultivating an average of 2 acres, would benefit from this project services in the next three years.
