    The District Chief Executive (DCE) for the Builsa South District Daniel Kwame Gariba, has confirmed the construction of a solar-powered rice processing factory in the district.

    This comes after rice farmers in the Fumbisi and Gbedembilisi valleys last year endured drawbacks in getting the market for their produce after a bumper harvest.

    The government took medium-term measures in addressing the issue. However, the DCE said setting up a rice processing factory will a long way to help the rice farmers.

    Speaking to Yem radio in Bolgatanga, he said the construction of the factory is underway by the ministry of food and agriculture.

    One of the measures in solving this problem is to provide a rice processing factory within the enclave as soon as their products are ready. This is one measure the government has through the ministry of food and agriculture. As we speak the factory is under construction ” he said.

    He was however quick to add that, the factory wouldn’t have the capacity to buy and produce all the rice from the farmers but other similar ones are being constructed under the rural enterprise project.

    Me. Gariba further allayed concerns over the factory shutting down due to it’s connection to the national grid. This he said will never happen because the solar-powered factory will generate 23KW while only 11KW will be used by the factory.

    The construction is expected to complete by end of January 2020.

    Finally, the DCE said the factory will be run by a PPP arrangement but not solely by government.
