Kintampo farmers take center stage at Oyster Agribusiness awards durbar

The event, which included the company's annual Smallholder Farmer Award Scheme, underscored the vital role of agriculture in Ghana's economy and the importance of empowering smallholder farmers

Oyster Agribusiness, a leading agricultural technology (Agritech) company, has hosted a vibrant celebration, recognising the dedication and contributions of smallholder farmers in the Kintampo Municipality in the Bono East Region.

The event, which included the company’s annual Smallholder Farmer Award Scheme, underscored the vital role of agriculture in Ghana’s economy and the importance of empowering smallholder farmers.

Oyster Agribusiness CEO, Edmond Kombat, in a speech delivered on his behalf by Operations Manager, Daniel Kuupol, praised the farmers for their hard work and commitment.

“I am profoundly honoured to witness the fruits of our collective labour. In 2018, when we set out on this journey, our vision was clear: to uplift the lives of our farmers and communities, to bring sustainable agriculture practices to the forefront, and to foster a future where every smallholder farmer thrives. Today, as we gather here, we see the impact of that vision manifesting in the lives of over 3,000 farmers,” he said.

The Director for the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MOFA) in Kintampo North, Simon Yambor, as well as his colleague in the South,  Afia Asukua, both commended Oyster Agribusiness for complementing the government’s efforts in recognising and supporting farmers.

“These awards will not only motivate you to continue putting food on our tables, but also serve as a beacon for continued excellence and innovation in agriculture,” the latter said.

Additionally, Municipal Chief Executive Isaac Baffoe Ameyaw emphasised the importance of public-private partnerships in driving growth in the agricultural sector.

The highlight of the event was the recognition of outstanding farmers.

Nana Asaw Kabator Dramani, the overall best farmer with the highest yield per acre, received a MotorKing, symbolising the rewards of dedication and hard work. Other farmers received awards like motorbikes, seed planters, and essential farming equipment.

Oyster Agribusiness Board Chair, James Kombiok, concluded the event by stating, “Today marks a milestone in our journey to transform agriculture in Ghana. By empowering our smallholder farmers, we are building a brighter future for our communities and our nation.”
