Kasapreko’s Managing Director reckons it is important to pay attention to the Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SME) sector as it is a critical source of employment for many as well as serving as a manufacturing base boosting the local content agenda.
Richard Adjei made the call when the indigenous manufacturer and producer of beverage drinks signed a deal with Tetra Pak in inaugurating an automated carton aseptic juice line.
The new products launched, under the brand ‘Kiddy Pack’, offer a high level of food protection thanks to 6 layers packaging that protect the juice inside from light, oxygen, loss of flavour and odour intake.
8000 packs of ‘Kiddy Pack’ juice can be produced daily thanks to the new machine with Mr. Adjei noting the partnership is a strategic one which underlines Kasapreko’s operational endurance of 30 years.
The packaging is made primarily from natural wood fibre, recyclable and FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council).
Tetra Pak West Africa’s Managing Director; Oshiokamele Aruna, praised Kasapreko for being an innovative company that is committed to contributing to Ghana’s development.
