Sesa Mu Farmers’ Initiative is an agricultural development project, which aims to bring pineapple farmers in Berekuso together to build the Eastern Region’s biggest farmer cooperative, and boost economic growth in the area. Sesa Mu was co-founded by two final year Ashesi University College students, Sam Norman Sali and Emmanuel Ampadu, and has since achieved great success including receiving $10,000 in funding by the Dalai Lama Fellows in 2014.
On February 4, 2015, Sesa Mu launched its first Agribusiness Day, which was graced with the presence of well-known organizations and companies including Nestle Ghana Limited, Blue Skies Limited, and Esoko Ghana Limited, who shared valuable insights on the importance of agriculture in Ghana.
This year’s Agribusiness Day themed, “Youth in Agriculture; Debunking Myths, Exploring Opportunities”, promises to be more engaging and insightful and will take place on February 3, 2016, at Ashesi University College in Berekuso. Representatives from Blue Skies, Farmer Line, Moringa Connect, Food Research CSIR and Agribusiness in Sustainable Natural African Plant Products (ASNAPP) will be present to contribute to the discussion. An exhibition will be held to introduce some of Sesa Mu’s products to all who attend the event.
The Sesa Mu Farmers’ Initiative Team cordially invites you to its Agribusiness Day to learn more about what the project seeks to achieve beyond just its pineapple story.
