Supply Chain Manager

“The first time I saw the farm I was amazed and enthusiastic, and the idea caught me immediately: the creation and development of the first sustainable and biological farm in Ghana is an exciting challenge. For Cluster Farming water is more than a liquid, it is an essential element for fish processing, a common element between fish life and plants growth, moreover it is purified and reused in the production site for an eco-friendly approach. Therefore, Cluster Farming is like water, which in face of obstacles, does not give up, nor fights unnecessarily, but finds the road and outwits them. That is why I work here.”

Hatching / Breeding Manager - African catfish

I am passionate about aquaculture, and I believe that Cluster Farming Holding Limited is doing a very important work to produce sustainable and healthy food.

With almost two decades of experience in water treatment and water quality management coupled with acquiring the necessary experience with sustainable aquaculture practices, I am confident that my skills and experience are an asset in creating even more value for all the stakeholders in the value chain.

The prospects for creating a positive, impactful narrative about agribusiness in general by Cluster Farming, being the pace setter in leading the change and create awareness in what can be done and achieved fills me with great optimism. I am also excited about the opportunity to work on a project that is focused on producing catfish in a wholesome and ecologically friendly manner.

"My utmost desire to join Cluster Farming stems from the fact that Cluster Farming is championing in developing small scale farmers in to  commercial farmers. This is a positive economic impact for Ghana’s agricultural sector. Agriculture always was and always will be a very important part of Ghana’s economic success and Cluster Farming is determined to be its largest promoter and therefore I am proud to be part of the Cluster Farming team, since I believe in making reality out of opportunities."
