HGL Volta Trigger 1 Project (VOT1)

Agro Processing

Phase A – Rice Mill Four (4) metric tonne per hour rice mill capable of processing about 20,000 metric tonnes of rice paddy per year in a two-shift cycle. Raw material for the facility is procured from a network of about 300 out-growers, cultivating a minimum of 20 acres each of rice paddy. This is expected to generate employment for about 1500 people. Out-growers will be supported with agric mechanisation, input supplies and extension services. Cereal Primary Processing and Storage 3,000 metric tonne grain silo 150 metric tonne per day dryer powered by LPG Pre-cleaner Raw cereal bagging facility Facility is suitable for rice paddy, maize and soybean Phase ‘A’ equipment procured. Installation 90% completed

Agriculture (Cultivation)

A 500-acre farm that serves as a demonstration farm to support the agro-processing and agritourism sub-businesses. It is currently being used to cultivate perfumed rice and out-of- season vegetables. Serves as the farm base for training and research to support the company’s out-grower programme. This out-grower programme is designed to support HGL’s agro-processing activities with raw material (rice paddy). It is also expected to serve as the agro infrastructure for the agritourism business Irrigation A 30-million gallon ground reservoir has been constructed and an additional 70 million gallon reservoir is planned to be constructed by quarter four (4) of 2020. Equipped with two (2) boreholes producing about 50,000 litres of water per day.


The HGL agritourism business is primarily aimed at drawing more Ghanaians, especially the middle class, into farming, as a ‘cool’, fun and viable investment option using a crowd farming model. Under this initiative, the company develops an agric-estate and encourages people to invest in identifiable farm lots per season – just as they would invest in treasury bills but with the harvests as their return. The farm lots they invest in will be managed by HGL, which will cultivate the crops and provide all the farming services they need in return for a management fee. These seasonal owners and tourists can visit and stay on the farm at any time of their choosing and the company will ensure that their stays or visits are as enjoyable as they are memorable by arranging for them to explore the many tourist attractions in the Adaklu area such as the popular Adaklu Mountain and hiking trails which oversee the HGL farm.
