Latex Foam supports Gt. Accra Farmers Day celebration
Foam manufacturer, Latex Foam, yesterday presented 15 pieces of high density double-bed mattresses to the Greater Accra Regional Coordinating Council to support this year's Farmers Day celebration in the region.
The Public Relations Officer of the company, Mrs Gifty E. Appiah, presented the items at a short but impressive ceremony.
She said farmers deserved to be celebrated because they were the backbone of the country.
She said through the toil of farmers, all of society were fed, while the nation earned foreign exchange through the export of their produce.
She said farming "involves great sacrifice to feed society" and to sustain other economic activities, stressing that "this is the more reason farmers should be celebrated".
Mrs Appiah said despite the current economic challenges, Latex Foam was "determined to show appreciation for the gallant farmers for their role in national development through the gesture".
She said Latex Foam was happy to have been associated with the Farmers Day celebration since the inception of the event.
Indeed, the multiple award winning company, with footprints in Ghana and West Africa, has been a benefactor of the regional awards scheme over the years, providing support in logistics to the organisers.
The Greater Accra Regional Economic Planning Officer, Mrs Jemima Lomotey, who deputised for the Regional Minister, Henry Quartey, expressed gratitude to Latex Foam as he received the items on behalf of the regional coordinating council.
She said farmers around the country in the country were among the hardest hit following the distortions in the supply chain of inputs, especially fertiliser, as a result of the Russia-Ukraine war.
She said it was impressive that in the midst of the difficulties, farmers continued to produce under serious strain, adding that there was every reason to celebrate their gallantry.
The 38th edition of the National Farmers Day will take place tomorrow at the Jubilee Park in Koforidua in the Eastern Region on the theme: "Accelerating Agricultural Development Through Value Addition".
