Ghana’s impressive ecological sustainability


Not only is Ghana viewed as a prime example of democratic developments in Africa, it is also impressive for its modern agricultural sector, which is more than capable of meeting up to international comparisons.

Many suppliers have set their sights on ecological sustainability and are constantly working on the further development of value and supply chains.

In addition, an Economic Partnership Agreement between Ghana and the EU facilitates international trade, a further advantage that makes this West African country an interesting procurement market.

Enjoy the benefits of Ghana’s particularly diverse vegetation, the good transport links by sea and air to Europe and the wide-ranging import offers in the fruit & vegetables and natural ingredients sectors.

Your benefits 

  • Qualified suppliers with the focus on ecological sustainability
  • Good connections to the European market
  • An attractive alternative to South America thanks to complementary harvest seasons

Fresh produce

Harvesting seasons in Ghana offer trade advantages, since they are partly complementary to the harvests in South America. IPD producers offer products such as mangoes, papayas or sweet potatos, yam or okras, also in organic quality. 

A selection of different spices is presented on spoons

Natural ingredients

Ghana's diversity is also found in natural ingredients. Whether fatty oils from the coconut or processed fruits & vegetables: the range is large. The ingredients for pharmaceuticals and cosmetics are of equally high quality, e.g. shea butter, essential oils or moringa powder.
