Ghana - 04 July, 2023
Beekeeping and honey processing have been identified as viable green business ventures in the Sefwi Wiawso Juaboso Bia landscape. These activities play a significant role in supporting local livelihoods and economy. Despite this, there is a lack of coordinated effort and network to create an aggregation force among players in the field.
To address this, the MoMo4C programme, in collaboration with the Ghana Enterprise Agencies (GEA), organized workshops in each district of the Sefwi Wiawso Juaboso Bia landscape for beekeepers/honey processors. This was aimed at enhancing the capacities of the beekeepers and honey processors in areas such as group dynamics, leadership skills development, and management. The workshops, which brought together all honey processors fostered networking, coordination, and aggregation among actors, thereby making a greater impact on improving the quality and quantity of honey production as a viable business case for smallholder cocoa farmers.
It is anticipated that through the MoMo4C Programme interventions, a critical mass will be built in gathering a sufficient number of beekeepers and honey processors, creating the needed synergy by making the honey business value chain a competitive one.
