Tea production by Unilever Ghana moved to Nigeria over poor economy – Ato Forson alleges

Minority Leader in Parliament, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, has disclosed Unilever Ghana’s plan to transfer its tea production operations to Nigeria during his concluding remarks on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s 2024 State of the Nation address on Monday, March 11, 2024.

Representing the Ajumako Enyan Essiam constituency, Dr. Ato Forson pointed out the potential for more companies to relocate amid the prevailing economic challenges in Ghana.

Expressing concern about the management of the nation under the Akufo-Addo administration, he stressed that the departure of businesses is alarming and should raise concerns among Ghanaians.

As a former Deputy Minister of Finance, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson’s remarks reflect the growing anxiety surrounding Ghana’s economic stability and its repercussions for local enterprises.

“Again, Mr Speaker, Unilever Ghana, which has for a very long time been producing its famous Lipton tea in Ghana, has stopped its tea production here. Unilever has relocated its tea production to Nigeria.

“We have lost jobs by exporting the Lipton tea production to Nigeria. This is bad news for Ghanaian employees! Again, Mr Speaker, Unilever Ghana has not been able to commence its Pepsodent production in Ghana after President Akufo-Addo commissioned the plant, five years ago. This is as a result of the worsening business environment,” he stated.
