Planting for Food and Jobs has reduced kenkey prices – Bryan Acheampong

According to Dr. Bryan Acheampong, Minister of Food and Agriculture, the market’s availability of maize has caused a noticeable drop in kenkey prices.

He claims that this is the outcome of the Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ) Program’s successful execution.

The Abetifi Member of Parliament mentioned a statewide decrease in kenkey costs in an interview on Citi TV on March 13. In certain regions, the average price is as low as 2 cedis.

Dr. Acheampong stressed cooperative efforts with businesses like as Yara to improve rice production, leading to rice surpluses in different areas.

He also emphasized how the decrease in kenkey prices was caused by an excess of maize.

Dr. Acheampong also gave the populace assurances on the government’s ability to reduce food inflation on a national level.

“There is a lot of maize out there too and if you look at the price of maize on the market, it tells you that there is a lot of it out there and that is why the price of Kenkey is going down. The average is about 2 cedis and 3 cedis. I can get you kenkey for 2 cedis, I can get you kenkey for 4 cedis, I can get you kenkey for 5 cedis,” he said.

In addition to urging farmers to participate in the registration process, Mr. Acheampong stressed the significance of expanding agriculture and increasing food production through the PFJ Phase 2.

The Planting for Food and Jobs Program’s second phase officially began on Tuesday with the launch of a statewide farmer registration drive by the Ministry of Agriculture (PFJ Phase 2).
