With a fast growing economy and a rising middle-income class, the already rising demand for healthy food in Ghana will not slow down any time soon. At Eden Tree, we do not see this growing demand as a simple opportunity for doing business and filling up our pockets. We see it as a unique responsibility to help build a nation with healthier people; a nation where healthy eating habits become embedded in the culture as Ghana transitions from a developing to a truly emerging country.
We this in mind, we see it as our responsibility to inform consumers of where our products are coming from and the conditions in which they are produced
Green label certification
“The Ghana Green Label Scheme is aimed at promoting safe food production, postharvest handling and distribution using good and environmentally sustainable agricultural practices. Farmers, transporters and traders (wholesale and retail) subscribing to this Scheme must implement such practices.
The certification scheme is modelled to certify farms that comply with the requisite production and distribution systems that ensure that safety and environmental sustainability are not compromised until produce reaches the consumer. The implementation of this scheme should facilitate the eventual transition of the Ghanaian horticultural industry to sustainable agriculture. While the Ghana Green Label scheme targets the domestic market, it is expected to serve as an entry point for local farmers to access the international market”.
Some of Eden Tree farmers are Green Label Certified and the rest will be going through the right training process to get certified.
