The partnership aims to increase awareness of the importance of ECOM Ghana cocoa and other commodity exports from Ghana to the UK.

Having recently facilitated a meeting between President Nana Akufo Addo and London Mayor Sadiq Khan during the recent Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in London, GUBA continues to be at the forefront of expanding business, cultural and community relationships between the UK and Ghana.

ECOM Ghana works with more than 140,000 farmers as the leading private licensed cocoa buying company. The company provides advisory services, training and support to farmers on productivity, quality, certification, crop diversification, environmental and other broader social issues.

ECOM Ghana buys approximately 20 per cent of bean exports, as such ECOM Ghana is central to Ghana’s export success story.

Dentaa Amoateng MBE, founder and CEO of GUBA Enterprise, commented, “We will work with ECOM Ghana to explain the essential role they play in Ghana’s economy as well as help expand opportunities in the UK consumer and retail markets.”

GUBA Careers is an organisation that seeks to bridge the gap between those who are interested in moving back to Ghana after being a part of the Ghanaian Diaspora and it’s a platform to help match highly skilled graduates and professionals with recruiting organisations in Ghana. It also presents an opportunity for investment in Ghana and support for our community.

The three-year partnership starts with the 2018 GUBA Awards to be held in Greenwich, London on 13-14th July 2018, and is effective across GUBA initiatives in Ghana and the UK.
