GFZA ENTERPRISES

 

We believe in adding value at source. This means we aim to produce the finished product in the country of origin, rather than process it overseas. Our approach enables us to be closer to our farmers so we can source the best quality and return more value to communities through job creation, skills development and technology transfer.

We have factories in Ghana, Egypt, South Africa, Brazil and the UK.

Ghana

Our Ghanaian operation was the first of our network of production sites and remains the biggest. We have over 3,500 people in Ghana making us one of the biggest private sector employers in the country. Like all of our sites, the Ghanaian facility is a modern facility with state-of-the-art refrigeration systems and high tech communications. The site also has a library, an internet cafe, a laundry, a creche and a cafeteria providing a range of subsidised hot and cold meals. Blue Skies Ghana is located twenty miles North of Accra near an old Cocoa town called Nsawam.

The fruits we currently process in Ghana include; Smooth Cayanne Pineapple, MD2 Pineapple, Organic Sugarloaf Pineapple, Mango, Papaya, Coconut, Passion Fruit and Banana.
