MR Amit Agrawal, the Country Head of Olam Ghana Limited, a leading cocoa buying company and leader in the packaged food business, has predicted an appreciable growth in the Ghanaian business environment in 2010.
He said the stability achieved in the economy, backed by other favourable economic indicators, pointed to Ghana growing its business environment next year.
Mr Agrawal was speaking with the Daily Graphic at a business development dinner organised by the company for distributors of its packaged foods from the Ashanti, Brong Ahafo and Northern regions in Kumasi.
The occasion was to take a retrospective look at business activities for the year and chart a path for further progress in 2010.
Mr Agrawal said the company was taking advantage of the economic climate to build a world-class consumer business in the country.
"Ghana deserves the best and this is what OLAM is doing to meet the needs of the people,” he said.
He said the company, which also dealt in cashew, shea-nut and cotton, was well alive to its responsibilities and would never turn back.
The country head commended the distributors for their hard work, which enabled the company to see a significant growth in the business for the year and expressed the hope that they would continue to work hard in the coming years.
