African peanut plant

This article was originally published in Foodnews

US CHOCOLATE producing giant Hershey has announced plans to build a peanut processing factory in Ghana. Project Peanut Butter (PPB), which will be funded by the firm, is expected to provide a new market for local peanut farmers and boost the local economy. Once the facility is built, production is expected to start in the first half of 2014. The managing director of Project Peanut Butter, Dr Mark Manary, told Citi FM that the firm is yet to finalise where the factory will be located but, in the interim, will rent an existing space for other production companies. Currently, PPB distributes peanut-based, vitamin-enriched packets to malnourished children in Malawi, Sierra Leone and Mali.
