As part of the government’s 1-District-1-Factory initiative, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo commissioned Shoe Fabriek Ghana, a GH6.2 million shoe manufacturing company.
Shoe Fabriek Ghana Limited has the capacity to produce 800 pairs of shoes per day, including security boots.
Promoters of the project claim that the location of the factory in the Akuapem North District is expected to reduce rural-urban migration by offering jobs to the residents.
Shoes Fabriek has now provided jobs for 144 people in the district, as part of the 1D1F initiative in the Ministry of Trade and Industry.
