In 2021, WeComm launched the innovative Nserewa Project, which invested in 1000 acres of soya and 1000 acres of maize at the Babator Farming Company.
The partnership with GCX shall ensure WeComm is able to trade the huge volumes of commodities they produce from Nserewa and the various agricultural production schemes they run with partners.
Speaking after conferring with the leadership of GCX, the General Manager of Wecomm, Kojo Akoto Boateng said the partnership will enable the business to serve sponsors better and also make commodities available to boost trade.
“This partnership means that WeComm will now be trading their produce at a premium rate and also have the access to a wider market. This move ensures another level of security for investors of Nserewa and our various outgrowers across the country,” he said.
