Andy Appiah-Kubi

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Asante-Akyem North, Mr. Andy Appiah-Kubi, has disclosed plans to build three food processing factories in the constituency, to create more jobs and improve the living standards of the people.

Andy Appiah-KubiThese would be engaged in the production of plantain chips, processing of tomato into paste and watermelon juice extraction.

The MP in an interview with the media noted that, he is in consultation with an Indian Company to get the factories started. This project is in conformity with the government’s one-district one-factory policy.

Mr. Appiah-Kubi said it would end the situation, where plantain, tomatoes and watermelon, produced in large quantities which often gets rotten. And also the lack of poor market.

The honourable member said, the farmers would now be assured of ready market and this would inspire many young unemployed people, especially the youth, to go into agriculture.

He added that the factories would also be employing lots of people and that would cut down the unemployment rate and also to improve livelihoods.

“We would put in every effort to stop the destruction of food crops, farms and other water bodies by Fulani herdsmen and their cattle in the constituency”, Mr. Appiah-Kubi concluded.
